I'm assuming the tea leaves themselves are compostable, but will the bags
break down in the compost bin? I tend to drink a lot of tea, and do compost
the leaves after brewing loose-leaf tea. I'm just not sure if I should do
same with my bagged tea.
Keep the remnants in a large coffee can. I let the coffee dry out overnight
with the coffee filter holder open to the side. Tea bags generally take
about 3 days to dry out in an AC cooled house, may take longer for those
without. Biweekly, I take these to the mulch side of the garden and shake
out the contents. The paper goes to the burn pit, live in a rural area.
