Question Green tea-tannins

I have a bunch of new decaf green tea bags. FINALLY I can add tannins to my tank.

How EXACTLY do you do it and how often does it need to be replaced? Just put the jug with pre made water into the tank during water changes or...?

I read that OFL said to take the fish out and put bags (1 per gallon) for an hour in the tank/premade water. But she said that for sick fish so... I'm not sure.

Basically, how do I add tannins to my tank with decaf green tea bags?

And so I give up quickly...

My fish seemed a bit too lethargic for me, so I added a bunch of carbon to their filters and did 25% water changes. I guess I don't quite trust these tea bags. From now on, if I add tannins, it will be through IAL's.
