I am new to drinking loose leaf tea. I don’t care too much for using my tea-spoon shaped strainer (hard to get the leaves in and especially out). So I decided to search Google for how to make my own tea bags. Yes, I could have tried my other strainers, but I was in the mood to craft.

I used the idea and instructions from Marianne aka Songbird  It is posted here on Pretty Handy Girl.


Each tea bag has 2 tsp of loose leaf tea. I decided t not add a string or tag - this time.
