Happy Tea Tuesday!
I love to fill my own tea bags
with purchased bulk tea,
or my own tea blends.
Tea balls and tea strainers are all good,
but sometimes tea bags are just quick and easy,
and good to take on the road with you.
I buy my empty 'press and brew' tea bags
from Mountain Rose Herbs.
I filled some bags yesterday with Yerba Mate.
Then I needed a container to put my newly filled tea bags in....
one I can travel with easily, if I choose to.
I love to recycle, so
for my tea bags
I recycled a small tea container I already had,
( just about anything will do ).
Decorate the container with whatever you happen to have on hand...
(I had some bits of decorative paper from a previous project )...
and finally, put a label on the container.
(I used a scrap of yarn to tie the label on,
so it's easy to change out ).
You may want to add a date on the label too.
The green sticker at the bottom says,
"Enjoy the simple things in life".
While preparing and drinking my tea,
I will think of this quote for the day.
This quote was in my paper scraps,
but you could print out any quote you choose
and add it to your new container.
Get creative! Have fun!
Savor the Day!
