"He causeth the grass to grow for food, and herb for the service of man: that he may bring forth food out of the earth; And wine that maketh glad the heart of man, and oil to make his face to shine, and bread which strengtheneth a man's heart." ~Psalm 104: 14-15


DIY: Fill Your Own Tea Bags

This post contains affiliate links

Some teas I used included: Soothing Lemon which you can also find in the ebook Steeped,  and my Cough & Cold tea. Don't forget to get your Press & Brew Tea Bags while you're at it!

Join me today for a little lesson on how to fill our own tea bags; it's soo easy! Definitely worth investing a little time and money for the easy use and time saved later on. (Later we'll talk about other great uses for these little DIY Tea Bags!)

Have you filled your own tea bags yet? What herbs did you use?

This post is now part of the following blog-hops and link-ups:  Natural Living Monday @Nourishing Simplicity, The Art of Home-Making Monday @ Strangers & Pilgrims, Mama Moments @ A Mama's Story.


  1. We made some tea bags with cheesecloth last year. It was a blast! We used green and black teas and added citrus peels that we had dried over winter... I like the children's cough tea DIY you shared since we fall prey to that yucky sound every dry winter. Thanks for linking this up with us! I will have to see about getting some of those neat tea bags!

    1. What a neat project; it sounds like so much fun! Some day if I have extra time, I might make reusable little tea bags (the ones I have now are cotton sacks, but they're kinda big for individual tea cups.)
      These "Press and Brew" tea bags from Bulk Herb Store are totally time savers, plus they've made it so easy to bring some of my favorite tea mixes along while traveling! I was so grateful that Double-E Immune buster was in my stash - which I packed without even re-checking -totally helped me fight off a cold while I'm helping a friend prepare for her new baby!
      Thank you for sharing your tea bag fun with us Jess!

  2. Also I think something is wrong with the Bulk Herb Store link. I can't seem to access it.. maybe it is me :(

    1. Oh! Sorry about that! Thanks for letting me know! I think I fixed it-try again?
