Take one of your maps and experiment with how long to leave it in the tea dye to get the color you want. Leave it in the solution only 10-15 minutes the first time- remove it and let it completely dry to see what the end color will be. If it is not dark enough, wet in in plain water again, the soak in the tea for another 5-10 min. Dry and check the color  etc etc etc. You will need to reheat the tea solution beofre re-dyeing.

This way you will know exactly how long you want to dye the rest of the invitations to get the color you wnat.
