Scottish Blend Pyramid Shape Tea Bags
Scottish Blend Tea comes in the famous pyramid-shaped tea bags. Officially, the pyramid tea bags are officially known as Freeflow pyramid tea bags. In 1999, Scottish Blend switched to the pyramid tea bag. Pyramid tea bags act as small teapots and allow the tea leaves to move more freely, producing a better tasting tea. Pyramid tea bags allow 50% more room for the tea leaves to move. More room for the tea leaves results in a better infusion and a superior cup of tea.
