Adding urea to your tea is a waste of money and time in brewing, IMO. It would be more cost effective to spray straight urea, as you're not getting the proper benefits of a diverse compost tea because the N loving microbes will quickly choke out the good guys. You're getting the "fantastic" results from the urea and none from the tea.
