Default TEA... a solution that works for me


I've finally found a tea prep that works for me.

Got a 4-cup cone filter coffee maker.
I use it solely for making tea.
Two tsp of loose tea in the cone,
a fill of ( filtered ) water... and voila !!
A perfect pot of tea every time.
And it keeps it "at temp" too.

Now I can store the teapots, water kettles,
teaballs, and other paraphenalia..

BTW; it's getting harder and harder to find loose tea
at any of the local grocers...
and too often, internet sellers have "minimum order" requirements.
( that's how I got a lifetime supply of "Lipton Loose" )
???

Default TEA... a solution that works for me

When Im at a hotel Ill break open the teabags and use a coffee filter
to make tea. Ive been using a percolator since Christmas with my
GuangDong black. Loose Lipton from a cup isnt too gritty if you let
it sit a little longer with occasional stirring. I tell people make
tea anyway they can. Theyll find something that works for them. The
most expensive pot makes tea just as good as a styrofoam cup.
Elaborate rituals dont change the taste anymore than the finest
precision instruments. The first step in making tea is finally
enjoying a cup.
