Review: American Classic Tea in Pyramid Tea Bags

Published 05:24 am

My husband and I enjoy tea. We drink tea, visit tea farms, learn how tea is produced, write about tea and enjoy the occasional cocktail made with Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka.

We drink iced tea daily so I brew a pitcher at least twice a week.

Ever since we visited The Charleston Tea Plantation I've supported our locals by brewing and drinking only American Classic Tea. Right now we are working our way through a sampler box - hey, when you drink tea as often as we do you have to mix it up a bit.

We especially like the Plantation Peach flavored tea: 'tea with the sun ripened fresh taste of a Southern Peach' so the tea bag packaging says. And it's true. Delicious. Really, all of the South Carolina grown American Classic Teas are great. My gripe is not with the tea but with the pyramid tea bags.

American Classic Pyramid Tea Bags - The Good

The pyramid tea bags are individually wrapped. As the box says, the individual flavor-protecting envelopes do, in fact, ensure great taste and freshness. American Classic Tea does a fine job with packaging. The signature blue color is unique and the yellow and orange text pops well against this blue backdrop. The logo font is a bit old-fashioned looking but suits their image well.

What pleases me the most about the packaging is that the woven mesh pyramid bag, the string and the tag are made from sustainable / renewable resources and are 100% biodegradable. Yes. Aside from the fresh and pure tea flavor, this is a reason for us to support this fine South Carolina product.

American Classic Pyramid Tea Bags - The Bad

What pleases me the least about American Classic pyramid tea bags is that they do not hold up. When you pour water over the tea bags they split open and tea leaves float around in your tea. This inconveniently adds another step to the iced tea-making process - straining.

I use pyramid tea bags often. Many of my favorite herbal teas come in pyramid tea bags but I have never run into this problem with other brands. With all of the care and attention American Classic Tea puts into their tea making and tea packaging, I wish they would fix the problem with the pyramid tea bags.

American Classic Pyramid Tea Bags - The Haiku

Tea bags should hold up.
