I have been buying sweet orange cinnamon tea for a long time. I love the smell of it. One day a few years back I was dumping the tea leaves out and they still smelled so good I really hated trashing them. Then it dawned on me– Why not put them in a pot of water and simmer them for potpourri?
Each time, when I am finished with my tea leaves, I dump them in the same pan and just boil it some more. It makes the house smell so good. You can do this with any flavor you like. The stronger the scent, though, the better it works.
