Name that teabag tag

Here is a cup of Hazelnut Truffle Black Tea. The package describes it this way: "Rich dark chocolate enrobed with hints of hazelnut deliver a euphoric confectionary cup." Euphoric? Well, that may be taking it a bit far, but this *is* a really good hazelnut tea, one which manages to capture the complexity of the hazelnut's flavor, a distinct nutty taste you don't come across very often, especially not in a tea. And the tea leaf on the tea bag's tag is a nice touch, I thought.

To my surprise, this tea is from Tea forté, whose teawares and fancy pyramid teabags I have enjoyed on occasion. I found these at a Whole Foods store in Atlanta.

I don't believe I've ever seen Tea forté teabags packaged flat in teabag envelopes before. Have you? At any rate, I'm very much enjoying this as my new guilt-free dessert tea!

I have not seen Tea Forte' packaged that way before, but it is very nicely done.

I have not seen these either. Now I will be keeping my eyes open for them. When you said teabag tags it reminded me of a video tutorial I watched this week for making teabag tags. If you search Kim Klassen's blog, it was a few days ago.
