Sometimes we misplace very important things, like our tea infusers.

Here’s how to make a tea filter in a pinch, using items you already have in your kitchen.

Coffee Filter + String

  1. Measure out the amount of tea leaves you will need, and drop them in the centre of the filter.
  2. Pinch the filter into a satchel, bunching the acordian folds, with the tea forming a ball in the centre.
  3. Use a piece of uncoloured string (eg. butchers string) to keep the tea tied tightly in the bundle.
  4. Ta-da! Drop the satchel in a cup or pot and steep to desired strength.

Brewing Loose Leaf Tea (Without An Infuser)

No infuser needed! We’ll take you step-by step on how to brew your favourite nourishtea using a French press.

The same appliance many folks use to brew a pot of coffee can brew a delicious pot of tea. Also known as a press pot, it will keep the leaves and water separate, allowing you to control the strength of the tea.

  1. Measure nourishtea into the bottom of the pot (about 1 tbsp per 8 oz)
  2. Pour boiling water over the tea
  3. Insert the plunger into the pot, resting above the water
  4. Allow the tea to steep to desired strength (you will see the colour begin to change)
  5. When your tea has steeped, press the plunger to the bottom of the pot
  6. Pour and enjoy!
