Ole, I'm bleaching with washing soda before toning - I like warm tones. I'll play around now that I have a tea that works for me.
PhotoJim - all the teas were loose except the Red Rose - and I opened up the teabag so I could measure a teaspoon for the experiment.
Pentaxuser - I was wondering about Rooibos. I'm not fond of it and gave away the stash I had. I wonder about other herbal infusions. What about all those fruity ones full of hibiscus? My favorite - Licorice Spice is very pale - so not worth a try. The acidity of the brew is important, isn't it? Would green tea do anything?
I don't drink tea (or coffee) so I'll be happy for now to use my husbands Red Rose.
