Used green tea leaves as fertilizer?

I drink green tea almost everyday. I don't use tea bags. I use loose leaves. Can I use these leaves as fertilizers for my plants? I tired to google it, but couldn't find a satisfying answer. 
If yes, how much do I add and at what intervals? 
Thank you in advance☺.

    Add them to your compost heap. They are OK as a mulch to keep moisture in, but no good as a fertiliser. They have little or no nutrients.
