Earlier this year, I put compost on my bed. It was homemade in my own garden from veg waste in my kitchen. I tossed it out onto the bed and spread it around. I was amazed to see the amount of tea-bag bags (the paper-ish covers that contain the tea) partially decomposed, although the compost was 6 months old.  I am still picking them out of the bed! Note to self: Shake the tea out of the bags, placing the tea in the compost and the bags in the brown bin. They do decompose eventually.
