I am not a big coffee drinker - usually only one in the morning.
I do however, like to drink tea during the day - helps me stay warm.
I make both regular tea and green tea. I used to just make a cup of tea when I wanted one but found I often wanted a second cup and would have to repeat the process. And even though the tea bags are rated as two-cup bags, the 2nd cup never comes out strong enough for me.
I do have a large tea pot, so I started making a pot of tea at a time. Two tea bags per pot (when I make green tea I use 2 green tea bags and one raspberry tea bag).
If it is there I tend to drink more of it - a good thing when I am trying to get 3 cups of green tea in a day and if I happen to have leftover tea?
I just pour it into a container in the fridge and drink it cold the next day. Never any waste.
