    Thanks op for making people aware of the deal. Personally I would rather buy 100 tea bags for £1 (240 bags would be £2.40) as it's slightly cheaper. Poundland (and various other cheap stores) sell them at £1.

    (Homebargains do 440 bags for £3.99). I've seen this in other shops too. The ones at Poundstretcher are still slightly cheaper though.
    There's a lot of confusion and misinformation contained in the comments. I did a bit of research back in April. My findings are repeated here:
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Ty-Phoo tea bags are available in two types: 'one cup' variety, and 'normal'.

    I have just blown 1.5p by sacrificing two Ty-phoo teabags, one is a 'normal strength' bag, the other a 'one cup' variety. They are both of similar vintage and well inside their 'use by' date. By cutting the teabags open and inspecting their respective contents, I can confirm that the tea inside each bag is a subtly different colour from each other (the 'normal strength' tea being darker compared to the 'one cup' variety). And I noticed that the 'one cup' tea is cut slightly finer. Also confirmed, the volume/weight of tea in the 'normal strength' bag is approx twice that compared to that from the 'one cup' teabag. The 'one cup' teabag weighs 2g. The 'normal' teabag weighs 4g.

    Verdict: I assume the colour difference, and fineness of cut, indicates that the tea blends are different between 'one cup' and 'normal strength' Ty-phoo teabags.
    Great analysis AnthHether001 - although it does miss one rather important point does what does the tea taste like!
    I estimate that the 'Normal' bags should weight 3g based on the 240bags giving 750g total!

    Iceland have 300bags (937g) for £3.55 - very slightly cheaper - but might be closer than B&M
    sorry typo thats £3.25
    pjeff7, thank you for your reply.

    Re. the weight of Ty-Phoo tea bags.
    I have just weighed quantity 20 of the 'normal' Ty-Phoo tea bags, total weight being 66 grammes. That gives a single bag weight of 3.3 grammes. Obviously that weight includes the cellulose(?) fabric/material that the tea bag is made from, as well as the bag's actual tea leaves. Thank you for pointing that out.

    Re. 'What does the tea taste like?'
    That's a totally subjective discussion. Personally, I much prefer Ty-Phoo (normal tea bags) over all others, not least because the bags are foil wrapped in small quantities. Consequently, the tea stays fresher 'in the box' for much longer.

    For anybody who is interested, there was a fascinating BBC programme that visited the UK Ty-Phoo factory, shown on BBC1 (July 2017). As of today (31/08/17) the programme has another 6 days availability of viewing on i-player, here: bbc.co.uk/ipl…ags
    Note: The man in the Ty-Phoo lab stated that a brew/soak time of 4 minutes is essential to get all the flavour from the cut tea (in the tea bag) into the drink.
    (PS. I do not work for Ty-Phoo, nor the BBC. I just have an interest in tea!).
