Pyramid sachets (tea bags) like this are usually filled with higher-quality tea than the typical flat tea bags that are more widely-known and available. Unlike regular tea bags, which are usually made of paper, these sachets are often made of nylon. The synthetic nature of this material has led some people to raise questions about possible negative health impacts of these teabags.
