Dyeing eggs with tea is a fun and easy way to create unique and natural-looking Easter eggs. Here are the steps to dye eggs using tea:
- Tea bags (black tea or other types of tea)
- Vinegar (optional)
Boil enough water in a saucepan to cover the eggs.
Place the tea bags into the boiling water and let them steep for at least 5 minutes. You can use several tea bags to make the color darker.
Remove the tea bags from the water and let the mixture cool for a few minutes.
If you want to make the color darker, you can add a tablespoon of vinegar to the mixture.
Carefully place the eggs into the tea mixture using a spoon.
Let the eggs sit in the tea mixture for at least 30 minutes or until they reach the desired color.
Remove the eggs from the tea mixture and place them in a bowl to dry.
Once the eggs are dry, you can gently wipe them with a towel to remove any excess tea.
Your tea-dyed eggs are now ready to be displayed or used for Easter egg hunts!
Note: The longer you leave the eggs in the tea mixture, the darker the color will be. You can experiment with different types of tea to create different shades and hues.
