A Terrific Tower of Tea

I scored this Terrific Tower of Tea while I was garage sailing this Saturday.
It doesn't matter how old the tea is because I am not going to drink it. I am going to use it in the Rust-Tex dye studio. It has been known since ancient times that iron oxide and tannin will give you gray fabric.

Depends on the flavor and composition of the tea what color grey results. Works on paper, too. I learned this trick from a printmaker.

Your stuff is very cool.

I just brewed up the jasmin tea and got a wonderful greenish gray.
