Recycling Used Tea Bags and Loose Tea

Does anyone have any ideas what to do with used tea bags or grounds? There must be some way to recycle them.

All ferns love tea leaves.

I refrigerate my used tea bags and place on my puffy,tired eyes for 10 minutes.

We put ours in the compost heap, but I'll be holding a few back now that I've read Keeper's tip!

Here's a few. Wrap in cheese cloth and add to hot bath (Green and herbals)

Green tea absorbs odors- place some in fridge. I agree with PookaRina on the ferns. Add brewed leaves to potting soil. Makes good plant food. Poach some pears in brewed tea. Yum!

I put them on my plants and in compost. Both green and black tea will work as deodorizers so I hang teabags around after they have dried. I also use them as a car deodorizer. I had a chemical smell (glue? plastic?) in some of my cupboards and a few teabags fixed that. I read somewhere about tea being used to help in "sick house syndrome." Also, if you throw some in the garbage, they help keep it from getting too smelly!
