How Can I Use Up Old Tea?

Good Questions

Q: While looking for black tea leaves for the chai tea recipe, I found a bunch of different teas that I'd forgotten about (both bagged and loose leaf). Most are over four years old. Oops. Besides brewing, do you have suggestions on ways they can be used?

Editor: Diana, we love these cookies — they're a lovely way to use up a bit of tea. Also try putting it in cakes and other baked goods.
