Oh! You must try this. It is touching. I had no idea what tea bags did when lit in this particular fashion.

You’ll need:

Conventional tea bags

A pair of scissors

A plate

A lighter or matches

We didn’t do this outside, but maybe consider it.

To get started, cut open the top of the tea bag and put the tea in a mug for later use or just chuck it.
You should be left with a vaguely cylindrical tube of tea bag, which you stand on end on the plate. Light the top end of the cylinder. And hooray!
