Each cup of tea represents an imaginary voyage.
Tea, as we see it today, has covered a long voyage of 5000 years to become a symbol of freshness and rejuvenation in our lives. However, the journey of tea bags began only in 1908, still long before the option to buy organic green tea online came into existence.
The invention of tea bags was one of the biggest events in the evolution of our favourite beverage.
Roberta C. Lawson, Mary McLaren of Milwaukee, and Wisconsin received the first known patent for the tea bag in 1903. The apparatus was known as a "Tea Leaf Holder." However, in 1908 to save money, Thomas Sullivan, a New York tea importer, decided to distribute samples of tea to clients in tiny silk bags. He was confident that his clients would break open the silk bags and take out the actual tea. But instead of doing so, his customers just dropped the tiny, silk bags into the boiling water and they began ordering tea in these easy-to-dip bags. And this little accident is how tea got its long-time companion in tea bags.
Now, a quick question: what do you do with these tea bags after brewing a warm cup of tea? Usually, we discard the tea bag into the garbage. But what if we tell you, your Wagh Bakri Premium tea bag carries a host of benefits outside the mug just as they do inside it? As it turns out tea bags contain an abundance of organic matter that can be upcycled after it has served you a fresh cuppa.
So let's explore the way to put our used tea bags to work, instead of tossing them out.
Do you have trouble achieving a clear, glossy finish on your glass or mirror? Damp tea bags can be used to clean the surface and then wiped off with a dry, lint-free cloth. Dirt, fingerprints, and sticky substances on your bathroom mirror, large sliding glass doors or even stove tops will be cleaned easily with tea bags.
Tea bags have tannins or water-soluble compounds which stop metal pots and pans from forming rust. After each wash, simply massage the cookware surface with a moist, used tea bag to get everything back in working order.
Having difficulties in removing the grime from a pan’s bottom? The organic green tea bags you ordered online can help.
Place tea bags in the dishes, then pour boiling water into them and let them sit for a while. The remnants that are anchored at the bottom will be easier to remove without the use of harsh chemicals.
While you might typically use baking soda to freshen out your refrigerator, tea bags can accomplish the same task. Put a few tea bags in a bowl and place them in a hidden spot in the refrigerator. They efficiently absorb the scents and let the odours disappear.
Every few days, change the bags for a fresher-smelling fridge.
Some foul odours particularly adhere to the hands. The next time the smell of onions, cigarettes, seafood etc. just won't go away, try using tea bags instead. Simply apply them in the same manner as you would a bar of soap. Those unpleasant odours will quickly disappear thanks to the organic tea leaves!
