Things I am not a fan of: "fancy" nylon tea bags that will never degrade.

Are we talking about the empty ones  you can fill with your own dried leaves and (theoretically) re-use, or is there some tea brand whose tea-bags are made from nylon?

The latter. There are tea-bags for pre-bagged tea which are not just paper tea bags and that's just stupid.

Since apparently not everyone has seen a nylon tea bag (which, for the better if you haven't), here's what they look like.

I've seen images of individually shrink-wrapped BANANAS (still in the peel -- although I'd question the utility of already-peeled bananas too). I can't imagine what would possess anyone to buy such a thing.
