Lipton Pyramid tea bags - new

Lipton has this new tea out called Black Pearl in Pyramid shaped bags. I think what they did is create a new sort of bag through which water flows more easily and put less tea in each one.

In my household we drink tea in 16 oz mugs. I put three tea bags in each, poured boiling water over them, covered and waited five minutes. Very weak tea was the result with what I feel is a rather pasty aftertaste.

I found a Utube on Lipton tea with the new bags in which people find parasites in the bags. The teas they use are fruit mixes, which bugs like, and the camera did not get close enough for real conformation, but there was definitively a very visual grub that crawled out of one.

I have always preferred loose tea which I could not get at my local supermarkets for ages, but I just found some on Amazon.
