Using Tea for Breeding

Okay so i have been reading some of the further posts on this site and i came across that people use tea in there betta water and i am not familiar with this idea, if someone could shed some light on this it would be great. Like what kind of tea, decaff, or normal, how much for how long etc. As i would like to experiement if tea works betta than no tea. Thanks for any help!

I've heard of it but I haven't read anything about it. I think MrVampire was going to try it. I don't know if he ever did or not.

Well i read on one of his posts that he was going to use tea but the posts didnt go very far and there were no updates so i was just curious if this method actually works i would think tea wouldnt be good for bettas, if anything use like stained driftwood water because it will soften the water just like tea and it doesnt harm the fish

I think he probably meant he was going to use tea leaves instead of tea bags. Because those tea bags go through a lot of processes to be how they are. I don't see how the bettas would like that even if it was only left in there to add just a hint to the water not completely change it to tea.

okay well even if it was just tea leaves and not a tea bag, isnt the the bag just grinded up tea leaves in a thorw away bag instead of just leaves? I dont think, or i should say i dont know if it would make a difference if it was a tea bag or a tea leaf wouldnt the end result still be the same regardless of what form it is in?

I know indian almond leaves are good but they are hard to access her that is why i am asking about the tea thing. I know a website that will ship to Canada and they have indian almond leaves, indian almond leave bags, microworms, brineshrimp etc. basically all the nessecaties for breeding bettas. They sell them for a very good price like i mean dirty cheap, however the catch the shipping costs through the roof for like a 30 cent order or whatever so thats why i dont really use them.
