oddly enough, the smell is almost raspberry, which makes me wonder about Wulf's question as to whether or not something else is mixed into the tea blend...it would make sense that the red would come from a berry, so I will be investigating that the next time hubby purchases tea--

I am saving all of his used tea leaves to try on fabric as suggested!

Here are a couple of more pics of paper using the exact same dye batch...as you can see, the color range is incredible...from almost a bluish grey to the bright and dark red...

This was the first sheet...not a whole lot happening...


These are the last pieces I did--I left them on the cookie sheet overnight...in the morning, I was like WOW!!

Such lovely papers!  Somehow I've never made the tea/paper connection, even though I usually have a dozen different types of herbal tea in the house.  Definitely going to have to try this!
