I used coffee filter papers and cut out two small rectangles approximately 2 inches x 3.5 inches from the paper and then stitched the two long sides and the bottom up, leaving the top edge open to pour in a teaspoon and a half of my favourite Yumchaa loose leaf blends.
Next, I carefully folded over the top two corners and then the top edge and stapled it with a mini stapler. I left some thread loose to create the teabag string. I used orange thread to capture the essence of the tea inside.

Then, using card, I cut out some cute butterfly and heart shaped tags and attached them using a couple of small stitches. I used the yellow colours for the Lemon Sherbert flavour tea.
They worked alright and the taste was fab! I plan to make some more in different colours, green for peppermint tea and grey for Earl Grey. They only take a couple of seconds to make and are so cute they could be added to a Christmas Hamper with some homemade biscuits, lemon butters and jams.
Thanks to the girls (especially Amanda!) over at A Beautiful Mess for giving me my endless inspiration!
