Treat someone you care about to these useful, pretty and practical tea bags. Easy to make, these handmade tea bags make a thoughtful and considered gift whether you want to say thank you, wish them a happy birthday or simply show you’re thinking of them.
What You’ll Need
Food grade muslin cut into squares of approx 12 x 12cm
Loose leaf tea (we used chamomile, jasmine pearls and some warming spices)
Embroidery thread or thin thread
Paper of your choice for message tags
A little tape
Place approximately 1.5 teaspoons of tea onto the middle of one of your muslin squares.
Bring the opposite corners of the muslin together. Tie with your silk or thread – around 20cm is a good length.
Fold your paper in half to make the tags. It’s a good idea to stick the thread into the inside of the tag with some tape before stapling securely at the top.
Finally, write a lovely message on the tag and gift them in a beautiful Denby mug.
