Nothing herbal or green. I had to dye some lace a couple of weeks ago and I just used regular black tea that I already had in my cupboard.

Is the lace organic (like cotton) or is it synthetic (polyester)?  That makes a difference.

I died some with red rose (a black tea) and it worked just fine. mostly.  (if you have a cat, keep her away from wet tea soaked lace, unless you want tea all over your house)

Tea dyeing tends to work on natural fabrics… I had some synthetic lace and the tea seemed to just roll off some parts. It might be worth just trying to dye a small sample of the lace before you invest in too many tea bags, to see how it will turn out. Then again, you can always just drink the tea!
