Eco-Friendly Tea Bags Cause Busting Tea Party

    England is in an uproar as Yorkshire Tea bags are breaking apart when dunked in water. The bags are upsetting the not-so-environmentally friendly sippers.

    Yorkshire Tea, the country’s second biggest brand after PG Tips, launched the new biodegradable teabags in June and has now been forced to respond to a barrage of complaints.

    Fun Fact: The tea bag was invented accidentally when New York merchant Thomas Sullivan sent out tea samples in silk bags and customers put them directly into teapots.
