How Else Can I Use Loose Leaf Green Tea?

Good Questions

Q: Having been a coffee drinker most of my life, I've recently begun to explore (and enjoy) tea. Many well-meaning friends and family have given me gifts of tea, which I appreciate, but I now find myself with a particularly large stash of loose leaf green tea.

My question is: Aside from drinking it until my teeth float, what else can I use loose leaf green tea for?
