Stale tea

Postby DarkenedSun » Sep 30th, '11, 14:25

My mother gave me a bunch of tea recently and it's all stale. Anyone have any ideas of what I can do with it? I hate the thought of throwing it away but I certainly do not want to drink it. :roll:

if it's bagged tea, I don't know what to tell you. If it's loose leaf, try warming it briefly in an oven.

Due to recent surgery, a tea bath is not possible for the rime being. :wink: Then again, it's already stale... why not let it sit a while longer! :lol:

Why didn't I think of that when I was cleaning out the tea cabinet? I suspect that my other rejects could go out in the yard as-is just like other dry leaves.

Must have been pretty bad tea if the worms died. :P
