I'm wondering, we drink lots of tea. I duly compost them. Will this affect the balance of my soil, and if so, which mineral will it increase?

Below is an article on composting tea bags that you will find helpful. It is said that when added to the compost heap, tea grounds help achieve a pH balance of around 6.5, which is considered optimal for a majority of plants.

Happy gardening!
