Use green tea leaves in recipes and meal preparation
Studies show that green tea leaves may have remarkable health benefits. Plus, the leaves are a good source of fiber. You can actually use the leaves in the same way you would spinach. Try adding them to fresh soups or create a salad from the leaves by adding a little soy sauce, rice vinegar, and sweetener. Moisten the leaves and heat them in a pan over the stove. Add a little butter, sea salt, and garlic and you’ll have a side dish similar to greens or spinach. Do an internet search and find other recipes for green tea leaves and experiment a little on your own.
Use green tea leaves to Deodorize your refrigerator
Instead of that box of baking soda, fill a bowl or box with green tea leaves to help deodorize your refrigerator and keep smells under control. Make sure the leaves are dry before placing them in the refrigerator.
Use green tea leaves to Make green tea bath sachets
Green tea bath sachets are easy to make. Simply add drops of your favorite essential oils to the dry green tea leaves. Place the scented leaves into muslin bags and tie them off with ribbons. When you’re ready to use it, simply toss it in the bathtub. You can reuse them several times before they lose their scent.
Use green tea leaves as repellent for Pantry and Meal Moths
