[Because I love tea]

I drink this. We switched to loose leaf a while back because a lot of tea bags do not decompose or contain microplastics.

Very tasty blend and we buy it by the KG so its actually a lot cheaper than bags.

That looks very tasty.

I'm a tea drinker as well, but I just slurp down the store brand black tea in the large bag (for sun or iced tea). Thankfully those are still produced in a paper mesh envelope that we compost at home.

On occasion I'll enjoy a loose Pu-er tea, but I'm really more of a "eat to live" type who sees consumables as fuel so typically I'm happy with soaking a ten cent bag, followed by another, and calling it a day or shifting over to peppermint.
When in doubt, add resistance.

Made some cannabis tea earlier, used a gram of ABV (mids), a teaspoon of coconut oil and simmered in a thermos for four hours. I'm currently coming down from a solid 5.

Steeped it with a Lipton green tea bag and two bags of a "lemon flavored" tea I can't recall the name of rn.

I personally really love tea as well, even with just a microwave and mug I really like the ritual aspect behind brewing a cup of Darjeeling or English breakfast.

Was researching last night the best way to make Nettle tea as we get loads of them in our garden.
Looks like it's best to wait for fresh growth in the spring, harvest, dry and boil up.
Add cinnamon / lemon peel to the boil for extra flava.

Will give it a go for sure! Mean't to be good for allergies, of which I get a few (including bad hayfever)
