Sweet tea bags

I came up with another idea that could make my millions this morning: tea-and-sugar bags. As well as encasing a generous portion of tea leaves within the square, round or pyramidal bag, PG Tips, Tetley or one of their tea-making brethren would include a single spoonful of sugar.

The target market for the product would be labourers and office workers, essentially those without the luxury of a lovely ornamental sugar jar next to their kettle.

In homage to the branding of delayed-TV stations, the respective tea brands would simply add +1 to their names to signify boxes containing the sweetening spoonful. +2 could be considered as an additional, sweeter product, but I’d stay stop there, for the sake of the nation’s teeth and an overburdened dental profession. And to prevent a third of supermarket shelf space being dedicated to tea.

Anyone for a cup of Tetley+1?

    Why stop there, include some powdered milk and voila; tea, sugar and white!

    An excellent idea. Do me a favour when you get to Dragon’s Den and give Theo a clout for me.

    That’s really weird, I suggested that to someone at work just the other day.

    Back off MS, I have an international patent pending for my idea, it’s a sure fire idea for an all-in-one teabag.
