Any loose leaf tea recipes?
I have well over an ounce of loose leaf black tea and I don't know what to do with it (besides making a ton of tea). Any ideas or suggestions?
Thanks a bunches!
U could make a batch of spiced tea mix (u can google a quick recipe if u don't have one) and create some gift teabags.
I've tried a few green tea toiletries 'recipes' (green tea & lemongrass bath salts are lovely), not sure if black tea could be substituted....please DON'T BLAME ME if it stains you or the bath
Black Tea & Pepper or Cardamom sounds like a nice mix tho <3
Actually, now i think about it, I bought some bath teabags years ago that had black tea in them.
They wer either from a company called Arran Aromatics or else Boots the chemist.
you could always go to a Herbs shop and get Rind of Orange, Roobis (red tea), Vanilla, Cinnamon, rosehips, cloves, nutmeg, ECT. I tend to like my Black teas more like a spice tea. The Herbal shop I get loose leaf herbs from sells the above in huge glass bottles and I just smell around until I find the perfect mixture.
Also you can dye linen and muslin type fabrics with black tea for an aged antique feeling. If you would like to try making soap you could try adding the tea into the soap batter like I did with coffee in this tutorial
This approach involves a premade bar of soap, all you do is remelt it. VERY EASY!
Thanks guys, I'll check these ideas out!
