Thanks to a post by a new member over in the Beauty Goddess section, I was inspired to find some info about tea bags, and was pleasantly surprised to find this, taken from Celestial Seasoning's website.

TEA BAGS

So Many Uses, So Little Time

Did you know?

In 1904, Thomas Sullivan, New York City, used tea bags to send samples to his customers so he wouldn't have to use more expensive tins.

• Tea Sachets - add your favorite tea bags (or combination of tea bags and herbs) to a pretty sachet bag and put it anywhere to add a wonderful, fragrant aroma. Easy, inexpensive and makes a great gift, too!

• Tea Staining - fabric can be tea-stained using tea, with varying results in color and darkness. Tea dying has been around a long time and was first used to hide stains on linens. Experiment with herb-based teas such as hibiscus for red tones and black teas for soft brown and cream colors.

• Tea compresses - help your swollen, puffy eyes by putting cooled green tea bags on your tired peepers!

• Tea fix for sunburns - cooled tea bags can help sunburns. The tea will lessen the pain and redness.

• Tea & Plant Recovery - quite a few of us learned this one from our moms: "water" your plants with your cooled, leftover tea and watch your houseplants thrive. Recycle your tea bags in the garden to give the outdoor flora beneficial nutrients as well.

• Tea Baths - use a large sachet bag or small lingerie bag and stuff the "bath bag" with your favorite teas and herbs. Add salts, oils or flowers to enhance your bathing respite.

Keep a lookout for more tea tips in future!

That's where I found that list.
