Sometimes the convenience of a tea bag is just too tempting. Unfortunately, some of the tea that comes in pre-packaged tea bags is of lower quality, involving mainly fannings and dust. With the T-Sac, you don't have to settle for lower quality tea for the sake of convenience. Perfect for making your own tea bags, the T-sac can be filled with high quality whole leaf loose tea. Available in multiple sizes, T-sacs are great for everything from a single serving to a large tea pot or iced tea pitcher. T-sacs feature a gusseted bottom that allows the tea to expand as it steeps, and a large flap that folds over the rim of your cup or teapot, keeping the T-Sac from slipping into your brew. Better yet, T-Sacs are chlorine free.
We now carry four sizes of T-Sacs, sizes 1 through 4. Size 1 is best used for single servings of smaller-sized tea leaves; Size 2 can be used for single servings of any size tea leaf or a 1-4 cup teapot; Size 3 is sized for 3-8 cup teapots; and Size 4 does the trick for 6-12 cup teapots or large iced tea pitchers. Each box contains 100 tea filters.
Made in Germany.

These are nice quality tea filters, and I appreciate that they're chlorine free. However, I ordered the size 1 for single-cup brewing, and the bag doesn't open up as much as I'd like to. I don't feel like I get the full flavor of the tea out of these bags. Perhaps the size 2 would be better for that.

Although the T Sac Tea Bags are not perfect compared to an infuser but they are perfect for on the go. They provide a quick and easy replacement for an infuser without losing the quality of tea the infuser makes.

While these don't open up as much as pyramid bags, they still serve their purpose. I'll be using them when travelling or when I want to serve friends tea since I don't own a large teapot.

I purchased the size one t-sacs since they were recommended for single servings. I think these will be great for travel or on the go but I won't be using them at home. I was hoping that they would be a little roomier to allow the tea leaves to really open up. I use two for one cup and it gets the job done.

This is a great product. I use it for all of my tea. And I plan to buy more with my next order.

These are better than infusers for using in motels. I always end up with tea leaves going down the drains since motels often don't have drain screens. With these, I can still use the good leaf teas and not feel guilty that I'm clogging the sink drain for the next traveler. I really like them. I also use them to make sun tea. Just add a piece of tape to keep the leaves from floating out, and drop a few in a 1/2 gallon jar.

I own a tea shop and we use T-Sacs all the time for tea to go. Makes life super easy and gives us the option of mixing teas in one bag. We use all sizes here but mostly sizes 2 and 4.
