Once in a while, I forgo my great love of coffee for a cup of tea. Tea
is soothing to the soul, and leaves me feeling like I just relaxed all my worries away, even if it is just for a few minutes.
If you are a tea lover, and drink the stuff all day long, all those tea bags
adding up seems very wasteful. You only use them once or twice and then end up throwing them in the garbage, unless you have used Francesca's tips on reusing tea bags
has an image tutorial that tells us how to make our own cloth teabags
that can be used over and over again. You'll need a small piece of muslin cloth, string, an awl to makes the holes, and needle and thread to stitch the thread into the bag.
For those of us that are into reusing an item over and over again, making your own tea bags is a great step in our never ending quest to go green
. The homemade tea bag can be washed over and over again, and the tea leaves can be added to our compost
