I found these teabags in my pantry, but when I tried to make tea from them I found that they were actually filled with a flavorless, dusty brown material rather than tea. Since I had some loose-leaf tea in the same pantry, I decided to clean the dust out of the teabags and replace it with real tea, thus making my morning routine easier. If you don't have any tea bags filled with dust, you can always cut apart and fold coffee filters to make your own tea bags.

Step 1: Clean Out That Dust!
Pick off the staple that holds the teabag together, and empty out the dust. You can soak this "tea" in water and use it along with wood to make barbecue in your smoker https://www.instructables.com/id/Build-a-Barbecue-Smoker-for-9/?ALLSTEPS or you can just throw it out.
Step 2: Fill With Good Tea
Open the teabag, then measure out about 1 teaspoon of real tea and add this to the teabag. I added a combination of English breakfast tea and Ceylon tea.
Fold up and re-staple the teabag.
Step 3: Brew and Enjoy!
Put a kettle full of water on the stove, and put the teabag into a teacup.
Wait until it boils, then pour the water over the teabag.
Wait about 3 to 5 minutes until the tea is brewed to your liking. Add sugar, milk, or lemon if you like.
