Last cup for now…the last 1/4 teaspoon of leaves go in the Junkyard Tea Jar. I’ll just sing the same song, another verse (to the tune of Jingle Bells):

Tasty tea, try and see
Decaf with some spunk;
Good for evenings, better than
Most cheapie decaf junk!

Junkyard Tea Jar? I love this idea!

Scraps of unflavored black teas—use to make iced tea in the summer or when you don’t care and just need some hot leaf juice. Flavor and composition changes regularly :)

Now that’s a great idea! Gonna steal it if you don’t mind.

Wish I could say I thought of it myself—simplyjenw inspired me with her Franken-Breakfast Blend (same idea, but more scientifically and proportionately prepared); and I think I’ve seen notes from other Steepsters who do something similar.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
