Homemade Tea Bags

I am not much of a coffee drinker since the acidity doesn’t agree with the tum tums, but tea- oh yes tea is where it is at. Iced or hot, bring it on! I am constantly making sun tea (even on the days when it’s not sunny out). I always have a good stash on hand when it come to tea since after all you never know your mood- need a pick me up or a cool down? Tea is the answer. Plus we are always having people come to our home to stay (kinda the deal when you get to live in such a beautiful town and you happen to have a few spare bedrooms). So with that, we often need to keep the cupboard stocked for our little “b & b.” Today we are going to make our own tea bags that will be the perfect addition to my tea stash, but I won’t stop there. These tea bags would be great party favors, mother’s day gifts or even the perfect personalized addition to a tea party.
