Oh sweet Rooibos, it's not you, it's me!

Rooibos Tea (Redbush Tea). Slightly tired of drinking it at the moment but apparently stopping is not going to be a satisfactory option. Is there any reason I can't just rip open a teabag and eat it? (Provided I sift it for sticks and bark and stuff first?) Or does the hot water play a part in releasing all of that Rooibos-ey goodness? But then, again... couldn't I just eat a teaspoon of leaf sludge?

I leave the teabag in (which gets mashed to the side about halfway through, I hate crusty teabags on the bottom) and it's usually cold by the time I drink it. So I was thinking half a teabag? Or is there a way to calculate it? I'm really doubtful but is there a possibility of it making me feel anything like I've eaten a bunch of Soldier Crabs (??
) (If so, my tummy's not delicate so would Slippery Elm or something probably take care of that risk?) There are the above unknowns.. but have I overlooked anything? Does anything about this plan, to skip the tea part and just eat it, horrify you or strike you as quite alarming?? Thank-you (perhaps most gratefully - and definitely in advance) :)
