About this deal

Tea was the chosen beverage for their meetings aka “tea parties,” and they were so well attended that hosts were tasked to prepare enough tea for the hundreds who attended.

Soilon™, a bio-based, non-petroleum-based biodegradable PLA from plants, developed by Yamanaka Industry of Japan, is a silky food-grade plastic used in many teabags. The words Taoiseach and Tánaiste (deputy prime minister) are both from the Irish language and of ancient origin. These bags allow a variety of quantities in the sac, so one can brew by the cup or the pot with as much or as little tea as desired instead of the pre-measured amount in commercial teabags. In 1929, Teekanne’s engineer, Adolf Rambold, solved the taste issue of fabric by using bags of paper, and more importantly, he invented world’s first teabag-packing machine.It was described in the July 1836 edition of “Preston Temperance Advocate” magazine as a large tea tin, “a yard square and a foot deep, each one containing as much as will serve 250 persons. At the top there is an aperture into which the boiling water is conveyed by a pipe from the boiler, and at one corner there is a tap, from which the tea when brewed is drawn out. The bag could be removed to be filled with tea and an elongated handle was attached to the float to carry it from kitchen to table.

Paper teabags, like previous fabric ones, often tainted the tea until Fay Osborn applied his MIT engineering education to the Dexter Corporation’s challenge to create a stronger, better paper. The office is appointed by the president of Ireland upon the nomination of Dáil Éireann (the lower house of the Oireachtas, Ireland’s national legislature) and must retain the support of a majority in the Dáil to remain in office. Despite the intensive labor, they were widely distributed on the front line to German soldiers during World War I. The Irish word taoiseach means “chief” or “leader”, and was adopted in the 1937 Constitution of Ireland as the title of the “head of the Government or Prime Minister”. Is it unkind to mock Liz Truss for mispronouncing “the Irish taoiseach” as “the Irish tea sock” even though she is *checks notes* the actual foreign secretary?Again from Wikipedia, in 1937 when the draft Constitution of Ireland was being debated in the Dáil, Frank MacDermot, an opposition politician, moved an amendment to substitute “Prime Minister” for the proposed “Taoiseach” title in the English text of the Constitution. Using fingers or tongs on the flap, one can lift the bag out of the cup when the liquor is infused and dispose it. Journalist and commentator David McCann joked: “I know of little children all across the island dreaming of one day becoming tea sock. Responding to criticism from Taoiseach Micheal Martin over the protocol Bill, in which he claimed it marked a "new low point" between UK-Irish relations, Ms Truss told RTE News: “I would strongly encourage the Irish ‘tea sock’ to discuss this with the EU. Instead of paper, they used the modern version of Sullivan’s original silk sachet, man-made nylon, which allowed up to 50% more room for the “agony of the leaves” to release their flavor.
