The tea bag is not a new image to most anyone, but the appearance of tea pods might be a new sight to some. Tea pods are almost exactly the same as tea bags but lack the iconic dunking string and tag familiar to most American tea drinkers.
Tea pods also differ in that they are specifically calibrated to make a great cup of tea in a specific brewing device, rather than the usual single cup dunking procedures for which regular tea bags are designed.
Today, we discuss the many tea options available to those who use their coffee pod coffee machine as their primary brewing device.
Tea Pods Take the Timing Out of Tea
We’ve all been there. You want a cup of tea, but does black tea need three minutes? Four? Five? Green tea, how much time does that need to steep? And don’t even get me started on Oolong. It is one of the bothers of tea, really, and tea pods take this entire step out of the process. With tea pods, the tea is exposed to boiled water in a controlled environment and for a particular amount of time under a specific pressure, resulting in excellent tea every time.
