If you run out of bags for using loose tea, use a coffee filter. Place the amount of tea you need for a pot or a cup, into the center of the filter. Gather the filter up over the tea and tie it closed with a piece of string. Leave the ends of the string long enough to be able to pull the bag out of the pot or cup when the tea is finished steeping.

There is no need to use bags or filter of any sort for loose tea - just make tea the old-fashioned way! Add 1 teasppon of tea for each cup plus one more for the pot, then add boiling water, give a good stir, and allow to steep. Pour the tea through a strainer, and dispose of the used tea leaves in the compost or the garden.

BY USING YOUR DRIP COFFEE MAKER WITH A PAPER FILTER WILL GIVE YOU THE SAME RESULTS. YOU CAN MAKE A CUP OR AS MANY CUPS AS YOU WOULD LIKE. IT WORKS QUITE WELL AND IS SO EASY!!!!!!
THAT'S THE ONLY WAY WE MAKE TEA AT OUR HOUSE.
