Making the Most Out of Loose Green Tea Leaf

Posted by: Green Tea Nutrition Devotee In: Recipes

Let us face it; we all love green tea. Part of showing our love for tea is by recycling the leaves. This way, we can make the most of the beverage until its very end. While we rely on a habit of throwing used leaves away after use, we should remember that we could actually recycle them.

You need to remove as much water from the tea if you are going to recycle them. You can first strain them and place them on a sieve. Allow the leaves to remain that way until they are completely dry. Also, remember to turn the leaves over while drying. While you may think that they are good as waste, you can actually do a lot with loose leaves—from household help, insect repellant to beauty treatment.

What You Can Do With Loose Leaf Tea

  • You can employ used leaves for fresher breath. Just swish this in your mouth to enjoy a fresher breath after. You can also add some fresh peppermint leaves for better effect.
  • Get rid of swollen eyes by applying cloth dipped in used tea in the affected area.
  • Enjoy a pedicure within your home by using recycled loose tea. Just brew the leaves and use the liquids to soak your tired feet. You can even use the leaves to scrub your feet. You get a good moisturize aside from soothing tired feet.
  • You can easily get rid of refrigerator odor by putting dried leaves in an uncovered bowl inside the fridge.
  • Scrub the flour with leaves. The essential oils will condition your wood for a long-lasting shine.
  • Deodorize your countertops with used leaves.
  • You can place used leaves in your garden as fertilizers. Roses love to thrive in this plant brew, try it!

So next time you are going to throw away your used tealeaves, remember that you can still do many things with it. After all, recycling is fun!
