Well, a couple of days ago I finally had a bit of time and was sick of looking at the pile waiting to be "aged." So, while hubby was out and about, I had him pick up some Lipton yellow-label black tea - likely the cheapest black tea available. He, of course, found the "new-and-improved" version - Lipton PREMIUM Black Tea!! Kinda of defeated the purpose of Lipton yellow-label. But then it is what I had.
The process is much like I showed in Dye-ing for Kool-Aid, but tea staining is great fun, too. I'm sure many people have tea-dyed things and probably there are many blog posts about it. But I will add my photos to the numbers. It is always fun to see how the articles take the tea and taking the photos are an added bonus - at least for the blogger.

good lighting but now I can't go back and
re-take - they are stained.

not the water pot, it
doesn't hold enough water.)
