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.
