Who doesn’t love a good cup of tea? We definitely do, and it seems like the rest of the world agrees with us: tea is the second most popular beverage in the world! Most people have some tea in their cupboard as a staple, even if they don’t drink it themselves. But did you know that besides making a calming hot drink, there are more things you can do with a tea bag? For example, you can use tea bags to clean your dirty dishes. How? We’ll tell you!

We didn’t know a tea bag could do this!


It’s always a good time for a nice cup of tea: at breakfast, during lunch, or at night when you’re snuggled up on the couch watching TV. Did you know that the most tea per capita is consumed in Turkey? Ireland and the United Kingdom proudly make it to the second and third place. In most countries, people consume much more coffee than tea. The UK is different in that aspect, as coffee consumption is much lower than tea consumption. Standard English tea is still the most popular, but other types of tea are on the rise. More and more people opt for green tea or flavoured tea, both because of taste but also because green tea often contains less caffeine.


Tea has been used as a remedy against all kind of ailments for ages. Many types of tea have healing qualities. Green tea, for example, contains many antioxidants that can eliminate toxins from your body. Tea has also shown to lower cholesterol, combat obesity and it even lowers the chance of illnesses such as cancer and Alzheimer’s disease.

Other uses

Besides the fact that tea is a tasty drink, it has many other beneficial uses. Did you know that even your plants like tea? Prepare a cup of tea like you usually would and let it cool completely. Pour it into the soil of your houseplant to keep fungi at bay. Tea is also great at soothing a sunburn. Have you spent a little too much time in the sun? Prepare two cups of tea and pour them in a big bowl. Let it cool completely before grabbing a clean tea towel and soaking it in the tea. Put the tea towel on the afflicted area and you’ll notice a cooling effect. Moreover, your red skin will turn brown instead!
