Tea Is Not Just For The Cup

Lynn Maidment

It’s September and we’re moving into fall.   I was thinking the other day how life becomes to hectic this time of year.
I don’t know about you but I sometimes forget to take some time for myself.  It’s the little things that you do for yourself that can really make a huge impact on your life.
My commitment this up and coming year is to make sure I do something for myself no matter how small everyday.  A new acquaintance that I had just met indicated that if we don’t take care of ourselves who will?
I'm taking care of my tea leaves this month.  Over the next few months I'll be sharing a few ideas.
-Don’t throw your used or unwanted tea out into the garbage.  I’ve found throwing them directly into you flower bed does wonders for the condition of your plants.
-It’s that time of year when we close all the windows up and I find certain areas of the house have become a little smelly like foot wear.  Tea leaves are very absorbent and attracting odours.  
-They can be used on carpets (sprinkle across the stinky carpet let sit for 20 minutes to an hour and vacuum).
-In your refrigerator tea leaves can pick up odours just like baking soda. Put them in your refrigerator uncovered and they will pick up the odours in a day or two.
So remember before you throw out those old stale tea leaves keep them.  We’ll be adding other tea uses in future blogs.
