Brewed tea as an art material

From: Carol Wickenhiser-Schaudt <watercolorist<-at->

I have a couple questions from a fellow artist.

What are the thoughts on tea staining paper? Will the acid in the
tea deteriorate the artwork? I am trying to research this; the
evidence is that artist have done this for centuries, but is it
archival?
