Making a fresh batch of organic loose leaf tea will taste a lot better than instant processed tea bags. Same goes with coffee, instant coffee does not taste as good as freshly ground coffee, so many people prefer to take the time to make fresh coffee and add cream or sugar.
Working with organic loose leaf tea is easier than it looks. In fact, it’s even easier to make than coffee. There are many ways to brew organic loose leaf teas. The following is a list of accessories you can use to brew loose leaf teas. We do have some accessories available on our website or you can find some at Cost Plus World Market, Target, or even Amazon.com.
1. Disposable Tea Filters
2. Tea strainer
Brewing Technique 1:
Spoon your desired loose leaf tea into a disposable tea bag. Place in cup or mug of hot water and your tea will be ready to drink in a few minutes! Throw away filter bag or add more water for a second or third brew depending on the tea.
Brewing Technique 2:
Same with technique 1, use a spoon to fill the tea strainer with loose leaf tea. Place the strainer in a cup of hot water, wait for a few minutes, remove the strainer, and your tea is ready to enjoy!
Brewing Technique 3:
Spoon some loose leaf tea into a teapot and add hot water. Let steep for a few minutes. Pour tea for yourself and others to enjoy. Add more water to re-steep the same batch. The nice thing about a teapot is that you can share. Our teapot has a water control button so that you do not overbrew your tea leaves, unlike traditional teapots.
