Just Brew It: 4 Ways to Make Loose Leaf Tea Without an Infuser

Sure thing! Here's a revised version:

So, you've just brought home some loose leaf tea or received your first Plum Deluxe tea club order, and you're eager to make a cup! But wait a minute - you forgot to grab a tea ball at the store, or perhaps you've misplaced all your mesh infusers. No need to fret, though, we've got a solution for you! Here's how to brew loose leaf tea without an infuser.

Cup It

Here's a simple method for brewing loose leaf tea, ideal for those interested in reading tea leaves later. Just add your tea leaves directly into your cup, pour in hot water, steep, and enjoy! Please be aware that this method involves sipping with the possibility of encountering tea leaves.

Pot It

Many modern teapots include a removable infuser basket, but if yours doesn't or you're using a vintage set, here's how to brew tea in your pot: Simply spoon the tea leaves into the pot, pour in hot water, and let it steep. Once ready, strain the tea into your cup using a mesh kitchen strainer or slotted spoon to avoid tea leaves. This technique can also be applied using two mugs if you don't have a teapot.

Bag It

While bagged tea isn't our preferred choice, crafting your own is a viable alternative. If you've got pre-made tea filter bags handy, simply fill them with loose leaf tea and steep. They're perfect for travel or office use. If you lack these, makeshift tea bags can be fashioned from coffee filters, cheesecloth, or loose-woven cotton muslin cloth. Just place your tea in the center, gather the edges, twist, and secure with a rubber band or string.

Press It

For fellow coffee enthusiasts, there are some added possibilities. Remember that old French press? It's not just for coffee; it brews tea beautifully too! Just swap out the coffee for tea leaves, ensuring the press is thoroughly cleaned to avoid any coffee residue, unless you enjoy a hint of chai. In a pinch, a squeaky clean coffee maker can also serve as a makeshift tea brewer. So, go ahead, indulge in a satisfying cup of tea – no excuses!
