So I figured out a really good use for this! It isn’t the traditional way you use tea, but… I brewed a cup, left the bag in a bit too long to make sure the flavour was a bit stronger. Then… I used the tea as the liquid base to make oatmeal!
I used just plain oats, and it was a nice taste. I always make my own oat flavours by adding spices and fruits. This was quite wonderful and I am going to try making other teas into oatmeal bases to see how it goes.


ooh, this sounds like a wonderful idea!

My “dream job” would be owning a funky little tea shop that makes enough to pay the bills while working with what I love. Selling tea by the cup and pot, little baked treats to compliment the flavors, and maybe some art from local artists on the wall. Sigh…

I am not above a bag tea, though I prefer loose teas. I’ve lived in Japan for quite a while and travel around asia when I can. I of course love finding and buying local teas where ever I go! I love living somewhere that stop and shops sell tea bottles and boxes rather than colas. My favorite over the counter tea is Teh Botol, a Jasmine tea I found in Indonesia. I also like Sokenbicha (爽健美茶) in Japan.

I love all teas, but have a stronger love for the greens and blacks. I require caffeine and tend to sip tea all day. Tea=love!
