Help me understand the mysterious world of tea production. I see smallish companies like this
selling teabags and I always wonder about the process of going from loose tea leaves to teabag in shiny tea bag wrapper.
I assume that there is not a single person sitting and blending all the leaves, stuffing them into each individual teabag, gluing the bag closed, and then stuffing the bag into the paper/plastic wrapper. There must be some sort of automated process? A machine? Where do companies get teabag stuffing/making/packaging machines? Where do they get the teabags to put the tea in? How does it all work?
