How to Make Loose Tea in a Coffee Pot

Save

The traditional way of brewing loose tea is with a tea ball. The tea is placed in the ball, and the ball is placed into a pot of hot water. It is left to steep for a few minutes and then taken out. Steeping the tea in a coffee maker is a similar process, but because the hot water passes through the tea leaves faster, the leaves don't get as much of a chance to steep and bring out the full flavor of the tea. You can compensate for this by adding a few more tea leaves.

  • Put a coffee filter in the basket part of the coffee pot.

  • Fill the water reservoir with the appropriate amount of water for the number of cups of tea you want.

  • Add the tea leaves to the basket in the coffee pot. Use 1 tbsp. of loose tea for every 8 oz. of water. One cup in the coffee reservoir is equal to 8 oz. of water.

  • Turn on the coffee pot and wait for it to finish brewing.

Tips & Warnings

  • Designate one pot just for tea. If you use a coffee pot that has been used to make coffee, you will have a coffee flavor in your tea.
  • Make iced tea by doubling the amount of tea and pouring the tea into a pitcher and adding ice cubes.
