Tea Hack: The Easiest Cup of Tea

I love teaching people how to make tea part of their lifestyle. There are several steps to making a proper cup of tea and that may feel overwhelming to some people. This is how I teach many friends who are either new to drinking tea and need easy steps, or who want a faster way to make it part of their daily routine.



  1. Measure out the loose leaf tea and put it into your bottom pour pitcher. For a regular cup of tea use 1tsp/8oz. For a latte or iced tea make it more concentrated by using 2tsp/8oz.
  2. Fill the pitcher up with filtered water. (Tip, the higher the quality of your water, the better your tea will be).
  3. Let it sit overnight for 8-12 hours either on the counter or in your refrigerator.
  4. Put it over your cup and watch it fill the cup from the bottom.
  5. If you want it hot just warm it up in the microwave in a mug.
  6. If you would like it as a latte, just add some milk, heat it for 30 seconds and shake vigorously in a container with a lid. Follow this vlog for the super fast latte hack:
  7. You can reuse your leaves by adding a little bit of fresh leaves and refilling with water. Let it sit in the fridge for 8-12 hours. Tea will last for several days in the fridge.
  8. When you are done, dump your leaves, rinse, and air dry.
