No matter what is the reason we can’t drink our tea hot or cold. It’s a tasty way of getting enough fluids in your body, but as you know Tea is capable of doing much more than that. Tea has many beneficial compounds, but most important are catechin and tannins, these are polyphenolic biomolecules that have tremendous health benefits ranging from weight loss to cancer protection. If you are an avid tea drinker you must be having a heap of used teabags, or most likely you are just throwing them in the trash.  Here are some unique ways you can use tea bags for your benefit:
