I cold brewed the leaves from yesterday for an iced green tea, but then I wasn’t in the mood for it. I decided to give it to my roses! I filled up the pitcher with even more water then poured the watery tea and leaves into the ground. Roses love tea and tea leaves – they are a good source of nitrogen for the soil.
I do this with leftover coffee too, sometimes straight from the coffee pot (but diluted!). Once the little boy next door stage whispered to his mom, “Look! She’s putting COFFEE in her FLOWERS!” when I was coffee-ing the mums.
