I was chatting with my aide yesterday and she was telling me one of her other clients only uses tea water on her house plants, I've never heard of doing that.
How many of you have used it and how much tea & water ratio do you use? Whats the purpose, is it like a fertilizer?

There are many different types of tea, as I am sure you are aware. There is no evidence that any of them are beneficial for plants and some may even be toxic. Stick with plain water and occasional fertilizer if you believe your plants are lacking nutrients.
