compost tea
 n.— «The Amstutz compost-humus product is especially helpful to the housewife for potting plants. About 25 percent of the mixture in potting soil should be compost. Making a “compost tea” is also suggested for watering plants. This mixed in the ration of one pound of compost-humus to each gallon of water.» —“Bluffton Rabbit Raiser Finds Use For Waste” in Bluffton Lima News (Ohio) Mar. 24, 1958.
