20 Ways to Use Tea

I was browsing Pinterest last week when I stumbled across this article.

I’m not sure any of these will actually work, but I was intrigued.

#1. Relieve Tired Eyes: Spending too  many late nights indulging your night owl or too much time in front of a computer screen?  Get rid of the puffiness and aching eyes by places tea bags soaked in warm water on your eyes.  Leave for 20 minutes.

#3. Sunburn Relief: Take the sting out of painful sunburns with a soaked and cooled tea bag or add tea bags to a bath to take the sting out of widespread burns.  This can help relieve other types of burns too!

#10. Tenderize Tough Meat: Earl Grey will work overtime and English Breakfast will help out with dinner using this trick.  Steep black tea in hot, but not boiling, water for five minutes.  Add brown sugar until it dissolves.  Then pour over seasoned meat and bake in the oven until it falls off the fork.
