BTD Forums  /  Eat Right 4 Your Type  /  Used green tea leaves: good for the garden?
Posted by: 838 (Guest), Monday, May 28, 2007, 12:44pm
Just wondering if anyone has used their left over green tea leaves in the garden.  I'm guessing that it would be good for plants (ie: tomatoes).  Anyone been there / done that?

My old head nurse used to eat them in her salad.

Ever since you posted this before Dr. D I do the same thing with Mr. Itaru.  Not everytime, but just about. ;)

Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't...they float on top of the water in the tea pot I use that has a removable strainer inside. ;)

Interesting idea...this is a great way and nutrient dense method to add compost to one's garden and 'recycle' beneficial, and often expensive tea leaves.
