Just Snaps had a post about coffee earlier this week, but today I want to focus on tea! Above are used teabags. The drinking of tea is over – the ritual of afternoon tea no longer possible. These are dried and not yet emptied but waiting with purpose.
Tea contains tannin which is a great aid in natural dyeing. The picture above shows some suitably coloured naturally dyed fabric (dyed with leaves, not tea leaves, aided by tannin). It is for a small project which will hopefully be finished by Christmas. You can see just a part below.
