I recently got a bunch of loose red raspberry leaf tea. I have one of those metal tea balls, but the holes in it are too big and some of the herbs leak out which sort of defeats the purpose. I thought I might be able to make some little cloth tea bags instead. Anyone ever try this? I'm thinking about some little draw string bags out of some gauzy fabric that I have lying around, would this work? Thanks!

Should work fine.

I can get little fabric, drawstring bags at the local natural foods store. They aren't expensive, and I just rinse the used leaves out after using them. (Obviously, they do get stained from the tea). They don't last forever as the fabric starts wearing at the seams and the drawstring, but they're good for quite a while.

Edited to add: The tea takes a little longer to steep using these bags, I think it is because the cloth is denser than a regular tea bag
