I posted something on Facebook about making teabags and got a few questions, so I thought I would show the process here. It's very simple really:
1. Dry your herbs for your tea. I was making peppermint bags from peppermint I dried last June. Then decide what combinations you might want to put together. I like peppermint, rose hips and orange peel, but this time I just did plain peppermint because that's what Larry likes. You could also make individual size mulling spices with cinnamon sticks, whole cloves, allspice and orange peel to spice up your apple juice, cider or wine. Another possibility is buying bulk loose tea and bagging it yourself.
2. Purchase sealable teabags. I buy mine from the San Francisco Herb Company. They offer a wide selection of teas, herbs, spices and supplies for reasonable prices. The only hitch is that your order must total $30 and that is a lot of stuff! Get out your iron.
3. When your herbs are ready, crush them to the size needed to fit in your bags. Fill the bags,
then seal with an iron set on the "Cotton" setting and NO steam.
4. You're done!
