Black Tea Bags
Black tea is considered the strongest tea when compared to the others which are less oxidized.

And with black tea having a longer shelf life in terms of retaining its flavor, compared to say, green tea it has long been favored for trade.

Basically, one tea bag is meant to brew a solitary cup of tea, which is general knowledge. Black tea is produced in many regions of the world, and that is primarily what creates the difference with the black tea bags.

The Irish breakfast is a combination of several black teas which are all Assam. Masala black tea is usually rich in spices and sweeteners. It originates from India though it has been accepted in other parts of the world as well. All these, of course can be found packaged in tea bags.
