A tea bag (1) including a sealed pouch (30) having an internal tag
(50) disposed inside the sealed pouch or nestled between the lobes
(31a, 31b) of a multi-lobed pouch (3). The internal tag containing
text (60), or other message comprised of letters, words, images, symbols
or other indicia imprinted thereon or created using a cut-out technique.
When the sealed pouch becomes wet and translucent, the text, or other
message, is revealed to a user.
The present invention provides an aesthetically pleasing tea press
that hides a tea bag from view as the tea bag is being used to drain
tea into a cup. The tea press includes a first section and a second
section movably attached to the first section, thereby enabling
the first and second sections to be closed together, wherein at
least one of the first and second sections defines a tea draining
aperture and has a tea bag accommodating area such that the first
and second sections create a cavity suitably sized to hide a tea
bag from view when the sections are closed together.
An improved tea bag has a pouch containing tea and a string connected
to the pouch. A securing element is connected to the string. The
securing element is releaseably attachable to an object such as
a tea cup or tea pot.
A nonwoven fabric characterized in that the nonwoven fabric is
a thermoplastic synthetic fiber nonwoven fabric having a fabric
weight of 7 to 50 g/m.sup.2, an average yarn diameter of 7 to 40
.mu.m, a partial heat contact bonding ratio of 5 to 30% and a content
of a delustering agent of 0.5% by weight or less, or a nonwoven
fabric laminate the major component of which is the thermoplastic
synthetic fiber nonwoven fabric, and that the nonwoven fabric has
a maximum opening diameter of 200 to 2,000 .mu.m, and shows a transparency
of 50% or more, a powder leakage ratio of 10% by weight or less
and a hydrophilicity of less than 10 sec, and a tea bag in which
the nonwoven fabric is used.
