Welcome to my Blog...I'm spillin' all the Tea!



Don’t Squeeze Your Bag!

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!!!
