Not just green tea, these are red, yellow, pink and blue after a lover of a cuppa decided to design small pieces of art...on tea bags.  Some of Ruby Silvious' artworks, which include paintings of flowers, food, and clothes, take up to four hours to complete using paints, pens and inks.<br />
<br />
After drinking her tea, the 58-year-old leaves the bag to dry before using it as a canvas for a new work of art.  Ms Silvious, a designer living in Coxsackie, New York, USA, has drawn tea pots, coffees, portraits as well as landscapes as part of her Days of Tea challenge.  SEE OUR COPY FOR DETAILS.<br />
