Tags off teabags from all over the world

Tea tags sent by me

I had to admit, I never would have thought of collecting what a new contact 'Marina' from Russia calls 'tea tags'. But I suppose if you can collect stamps, train tickets or whateverhaveyou, why not tea tags? She has quite a collection too and when she contacted me on Flickr back in June asking if I could send her a tea tag from a teabag which she had seen in one of my photos, I hadn't thought anything of the colourful annoyances that sometimes slipped right INTO the tea if you didn't hold on to them tight enough. All of a sudden collecting them seems kind of attractive...

Anyway, always happy to contribute and Marina sent back this lovely photo to tell me they had arrived! I threw in some extra tags which I had collected~
