Making Loose Leaf Tea Without An Infuser
Making loose leaf tea without an infuser is a simple process, providing you have the right equipment. With this guide and a few items, you’ll be able to sip your favorite cup of tea in no time.
- Loose leaf tea
- Tea kettle
- Tea mug or teapot
- Tea strainer
- Heat up a pot of water and bring to a boil, then turn off the heat. You’ll want to use 1 teaspoon of loose tea leaves per cup of water you’re boiling.
- While the water is heating, put 2-3 teaspoons of tea leaves into the mug or teapot.
- Once the water has come to a boil, pour it into the mug or teapot over the tea leaves.
- Let your tea steep for the required time according to the type of tea leaves you are using. For example, green tea requires about 3 minutes, while black tea requires about 5 minutes.
- Once the tea has steeped, place the tea strainer over the mug or teapot and pour the tea into your cup. The tea strainer will catch any of the tea leaves that may have escaped from the mug or teapot.
Once the loose leaf tea is ready, you can add milk, sugar, honey or whatever other ingredients you like in your tea. Then, sip and enjoy your homemade cup of tea!
