Some of us here appreciates tea and is pretty knowledgeable when it comes to the different varies. Do you know that other than using it to make a delicious fragrant tea, tea bags have other usages for our everyday life as well. In today’s post, we are going to share with you some of the benefits of what you can do with tea bags.
1. Give flavor to your dinner
If you simply leave a brewed tea bag in a pot while you boil water for either rice or pasta, the flavors left in the tea bag will give the food a nice earthy flavor. It’s perfect for the picky eater who isn’t into plain grains (and much easier than trying to figure out how much seasoning or sauces to add).
2. Make your bathing experience better
Who could go for a hot bath right now? Or actually, who could go for a hot aromatherapy bath? No, you don’t need to shell out hundreds for a trip to the spa or for fancy aromatherapy scents. Simply putting a used tea bag over the faucet while you draw your bath will give off the same comfy feels as any scent you could buy.
Bonus: Drop a few used tea bags into the water. Tea leaves contain antioxidant, so they’re great for your skin.
3. Keep your plants happy
Have a garden to maintain? Toss used tea bags into the bucket of water that you usually use to water your plants, and then sprinkle the resulting weak tea water all over them. The tea will help to protect them from fungus!
4. Soothe a sunburn
Do you love the sun but it doesn’t love you? Aloe can get sticky and messy for a sunburn, so try this easy method instead: Take your used tea bag and drop it into some water, or better yet, put the water and tea bag in a spray bottle if you have one. Then spritz it all over your skin for ultimate soothing sensations.
5. Make a yummy cocktail
A used tea bag is the missing link to easy cocktails! It sounds crazy, but we’re not kidding. Just steep several used tea bags in vodka or run and use it to make cocktails tomorrow. It’ll enhance the flavour of your favourite mixed drink. For example, try mint tea steeped in rum for a delicious and refreshing mojito!
6. Get rid of gross odours
Used tea leaves are the perfect way to make everything from your kitty litter to your garbage can and your refrigerator smell fresh and new again. Just mix some dried used tea leaves or drop a dried tea bag into any of these places. Depending on the stink, you might need several. An additional tip is to put it at your worn shoes. This can remove the odour and prevent your shoes from smelling a tad less nasty.
