Things You'll Need

  • One paper coffee filter Rubber band or twist tie Loose leaf tea of your choice
  • Lay out all of the necessary items, so you don't have to rummage through drawers to find them during each step.

  • Take your tea, and put however much you want---it depends on how much tea you're making---into the filter.

  • Grab the top part of the filter, and push it together, so your filter now looks like a bag with tea in it.

  • While holding the filter closed, take a rubber band or twist tie---anything, actually, as long as whatever you use can hold the filter shut---and tie it around the top of the filter tightly.

  • Drop your newly made tea bag into some hot water, and enjoy.
