    What a waste of a tea bag. Put tea bag in a cup. Add boiling water, milk, sugar if you wish and enjoy a restful cuppa with a chocolate digestive.

    One company sells huge rolls of teabag paper. I still haven't quite mastered turning the sheet into a tube though.
     
  10. Make it into a cuboid karen, like a box section pipe. Works well and stays in shape if you give the sides a good crease and have a decent overlap. The roll is about £35, but is so big it will last for years and years!
     
    Mark and karen b like this.
  11. are all the fruit teas in tube bags?
     
  12. Not sure, but definitely Twinings are.
     
  13. I remember at home when I was a child, my Italian grandparents used to bring amaretti biscuits and used to make a tube out of the paper they were wrapped in and do exactly this. Awe and wonder at the dinner table. :)
    They were this brand:

    Don't know if it's still the same sort of paper but it'll be fun to try and find out. :D
     
  14. yes used to do this but they banned it in italian restaurants due to the fire risk.

     
  15. Wow you have a large budget then :D

    I shall be doing this after the start of next lesson :D
     
  16. Twinning Teabags... culprit of our financial special measures :D:D:D
