The first step in using tea to age paper is to place the paper on a baking sheet so that any tea that may flow over may be contained. The following step is to steep one to two black tea bags in one cup of boiling water for approximately five minutes. After that, use the tea bags to blot both sides of the paper until the paper is completely soaked with liquid on both sides.

Be cautious to restrict the tea as much as possible, and use paper towels to clean up any excess that may have occurred. After applying the tea, sprinkling the paper with instant coffee crystals will give the impression that there are age marks on the paper. After letting it stay for two minutes, wipe it clean with some paper towels to remove any residue.
