Default Composting Tea Bags

Hi All,

I've recently started to begin recycling everything I can at home, and was
wondering if I can put tea bags on my compost heap. Will the bags rot down
or do I just rip them and compost the actual tea. We tend to use a hell of a
lot of tea bags in our house.
Thanks.
Paul Pettet.

They will also compost if you don't rip them. Chuck 'em on.

Yep, they're good in a compost heap. Just bung them on whole. Whatever the
bags are made of it rots.
