That was another abortive attempt at a new product, the tea being made from the used stuffings of New Brunswick mattresses back in the early 1920s. March 3, 1921, 3:34 p.m. was the initial announcement, the product was taken off the market at 6:23 a.m. the next day. It was decided that there was no market for a tea made from ground corn shucks, horsehair, and various mosses and seaweeds. Even though the company pointed out that the teabags were made from bed linens that had been washed, the Department of Health in Fredericton said no.
