Watering Plants With Iced Tea

Does anyone know, is it OK to water my houseplants with leftover iced tea (no sugar)? I hate to throw it away when it doesn't get used up. I am thinking it's OK.

Thanks,
Kim from Crawford, CO

I have used left over tea for years to water all of my house plants and they thrive from it. (04/13/2007)

House and yard plants that are acid-loving will especially thrive on this. The tannic acid in tea is good for them. Roses, camellia, azaleas, fuchsia especially love it. I also use leftover coffee, cool of course, on plants, as well as coffee grounds in the soil.

Editor's Note: Both black coffee and tea (no milk, or sugar, or sweetener) is good for many plants and house plants. (04/13/2007)

We save our coffee grounds and tea leaves to add to our compost pile. But my grandmother always poured her left over tea and coffee right into her houseplants. (04/20/2007)
