Dying Easter Eggs with Tea
I was inspired by Stash’s post: http://blog.stashtea.com/image/46616109716
I’m using English Breakfast, Lipton’s Ginger Twist and Island Mango & Peach, Stash’s Black Chai, Celestial Seasoning’s Lemon Zinger, Twining’s Mandarin Honeybush, and rooibos.
EDIT: I’ll post pictures tomorrow for better lighting.
I saw Stash’s post too, and think I may try this tomorrow. Would love to see how yours turn out!
That looks really cool! Though, I gotta figure out which tea I’d need to sacrifice in order to make it!
Those look awesome! I would love to see pictures if anyone tries this:).
They should be finished dying tonight. I’ll post pictures then. So far, it seems that the rooibos and Island Mango & Peach are the weakest. The ones with noticeable color have squiggly lines.
I used cheap brands for that reason, Awkward Soul. :) My mom thinks the tea is going to waste, so she saved the tea bags and is planning on combining them – all seven of them – into one cup. BLARGH. I can update on this too, if anyone wants to find out…
Oh how pretty are those tea-dyed eggs. Very lovely, do post pics Kiwi. Here are mine that I just finished awhile ago, just ordinary dye tablets.
I drew a bunny on a blue one with the wax crayon but all you can see in the pic are his ears.
I got an email from Art of Tea for the same thing…dying easter eggs with tea:) I’ll have to find my email, lol!
Here they are! This is what happens if you only use 1 bag per bowl (I was stingy).
they turned out pretty neat! I like the textures – looks like planets or rocks.
Next year! Or why not anytime of the year! : )
I want to try cheap matcha! Wouldn’t bright green be pretty? I love those brown eggs, though, Kiwi. I love,the earthy, natural colors.
