Question for people who use tea bags to make tea

Do you ever reuse tea bags? I realize that you will not get all the benefits as you do from a new bag, but is it worth it to reuse it immediately after finishing the first cup?

  1. I never reuse teabags. I want all the flavor and caffeine I can get!

  2. Good points. I think it’s probably more trouble than it’s worth anyway.

  3. I am not a biochemist, however I strongly suspect that the antioxidant effects of tea disappear when you reuse the bags. I think they actually oxydize after use.

  4. Thanks. It’s probably not worth it (unless you are a cheapskate) to reuse them.
