For now, I am going to be using Zen Products Buddha Bags. Premade tea bags. I will search recipes when I am settled into the new room. As far as the lids, I’ve done drywall for twenty years....I fear no bucket lid!!! Hahaha!I think it will work just great!
Do you have a recipe in mind,, what are you putting in there ?
Those lids are stubborn sometimes. If you have trouble getting it off, just slip a couple of fingers in the bunghole.
