I just made the leap to loose tea not too long ago. I never minded throwing away tea bags because they look disgusting, especially after drying out, and are innately disposable. But I look over in my trash can now, and all I can see is a myriad of leaves that have been steeped once or twice. It just seems like such a waste to me! Well, my trash has never smelled this good, but I'm sure there are more noble uses for spent leaves.
I've looked around the forum and have seen a few posts about eating the leaves after drinking the tea. I usually do eat a few anyway, but it would probably be half my diet if I ate all of the leaves that I throw away
So what do you with your spent leaves?
-ps, sorry if this has been covered before. I searched around and was unable to find anything
