Don’t Squeeze Your Bag!
I’m sure you’ve been guilty of committing tea bag assault at some point.
You know what I’m talking about. It’s like a scene from Law & Order 👮♀️. You’re trying to squeeze every last drop of goodness out of your tea bag, so you strangle it tightly with its own string.
Or, you use your spoon 🥄 to smash it up with all your might against the side of the cup.
On the show 📺 they call that blunt force trauma…and it’s a felony.
What you’re actually doing is squeezing bitter tannins back into your cup. Don’t do it. Instead, remove it gently and lovingly from your cup.
Be kind to your bag. 😜
P.S. This does not apply to herbal teas as they aren’t from the actual tea plant so don’t have any tannins. Go ahead and beat the crap out of those bags!!!
