    Wishing all at Team Simple Leaf a Happy New Year and all the best for a great year ahead.

    Roll out the offerings of delectable teas – we are waiting to hear from you.

    By the way, I hear that infused tea leaves are good nutrients for plants? Can you confirm this?

  3. It is true that spent tea leaves are good for the soil – I really don’t have much in the way of scientific evidence to back this up, but it has worked for us and for many people we know.

    Coffee grounds and used tea leaves are acidic so it’s best to use them around acid-loving plants. Peet’s Coffee and Tea reports that you can mix with a little ground limestone for plants needing a neutral or alkaline soil.

    “An excellent source of nitrogen, coffee grounds and tea leaves are considered “green” sources in composting. Carbon sources such as dried leaves and straw are considered “brown” and should be used in larger quantities than the green materials. The nitrogen-rich coffee grounds will kickstart the composting process.”

    There’s also a brief mention of using tea leaves as a soil nutrient on TeaMuse:
