Roobois Tea

I've become extremely thankful for my re-discovery of the re-usability of tea. Being able to get 3-4 cups of decent flavor from a tea bag is pretty nifty, especially when I'm trying to up my water intake without decreasing my internal body temperature.

Just like when traveling, getting 4-6 uses out of a pair of pants is pretty handy.

Not decreasing your temperature? Ooh, does this mean you have exciting (or hopefully soon to be exciting) news? :D

Not really. In fact, for totally non-exciting medical reasons I've been told to increase my fluid intake to about 4L a day. However, it being winter, drinking cold water makes me freeze. Spending my mornings shivering is not ideal :)

And tea bags are compostable too! :-)

I'm more of a coffee drinker, but once in awhile I do drink tea... so this is good to know!

I go through tea bags with a lightening speed often only half drinking a cup and then making another straight away. Does the tea still taste as good on the 2nd 3rd and especially 4th cup tho?

Stephanie- I don't touch coffee, and I'm really only an occasional tea-drinker. But I've just rediscovered this nice Korean tea in my cabinets, so it's started again!

Anna- Actually, I've found that the 2nd & 3rd cups are probably better than the 1st cup, since I tend to overbrew the first cup each time. Well, either overbrew or scald, I'm not entirely sure which, lol. The 4th cup is hit or miss ;)

This post made me smile, because thanks to my grandpa's habit (born from growing up during the great depression), everyone in my family reuses teabags at least once :)

I love to reuse my tea bags. It is especially helpful if drinking caffeinated tea because the amount decreases each time.
