C.L. Hint of the Day: Organizing tea

There's nothing like a hot cup of tea on a cold winter's day. But between the small samplers that came in a Christmas basket and a cavernous cupboard above my head, my tea shelf had become a mess. I couldn't tell what I had or how much of it. I was loath to give up the original boxes because some brands of tea were tag and bag less.

One quart jars
Dry erase marker
snack size baggies

Group your tea into categories- mine were black, chai, caffeine free herbal, mint, and citrus. Trim an identifying portion of the box from tea bags that don't have tags or bags, and place it in snack size baggies with the loose bags. Put the tea in the appropriate jar and label with a dry erase marker.
