Compost. Tea bags make wonderful compost for your garden. Simply add them to your compost heap and let nature takes its course.

Under eye soother. Used tea bags, particularly chamomile bags, can be cooled and placed on the eyes for a wonderful soothing relaxant.

Use on sun burns. Peppermint tea bags are great for sunburns. Leave to cool then place the bags on the burnt areas.

Use on cuts. Used tea bags are also great on cuts and bruises. You can use any variety but green tea, peppermint and chamomile have good soothing qualities.

Exfoliate. Break open the tea bag and use what's inside to exfoliate your hands.

Are you a tea drinker? Do you do anything to reuse tea?

    I am a tea drinker but I have never done anything to reuse the tea. I like the idea of using it as an exfoliant. Thank you for sharing this post.

    What is the green tea extract capsules made from? Can you use the tea that has been processed with the mineral water or unprocessed tea loose leaf?
