Quick Tip: Reuse Tea Bags

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck, copyright December 29, 2016

When I was a young(er) adult, I remember sitting in my mother’s kitchen with my Nan. We were talking about little things, mainly, while making tea. She told me she always uses her tea bags at least twice. She explained that after one use, a tea bag still has plenty of flavor.

This made complete sense, and I started doing the same. I can actually get two-and-a-half decent uses out of a tea bag in a big mug. This also means I’m saving money, an important thing for this frugal momma.

Even when I go to Aroma Joe’s to write or work on a project, I have them reuse the tea bags from my first cup of tea for a second cup. This means my second tea is free.

Spend less, enjoy more, and save money in the process.
