I’m curious as to how the tea drinkers make their tea! Before meeting my SO, I always used tea bags bought in bulk from the grocery store. A couple years ago when I met him, I discovered loose leaf tea and have experiemented with the varies ways to steep tea. Tea is so much better now days and I have so many more options!
My current favorite tea steeping is using a teapot with a strainer type thing, which is my Adagio Teas Ingeniutea Teapot.
And a close second is a travel tea press similar to this one:
So, I’m wondering how do you make your tea??????
Edit: For some reason it is showing two “other” options, but when I change it it doesn’t save? Weird.

I use tea bag either in a cup or a pot (I voted for both). I’ve never tried loose leaf.

I make mine like you, but it’s some weird brand tea strainer/cup/pot that my Future Mother-In-Law got for me when she was in China, she said everyone had them there.

We started making loose leaf tea in our french press and we love it!

I usually use this, but I’ll use a tea ball occasionally.
It’s double-walled glass with a basket at the top. Tea goes under the basket. You can’t use it for teas that go bitter if you brew for longer than the brew time though.

I like to use a tea pot for loose leaf- or a mate’ gourd for mate’- or if the tea comes in a tea bag I boil it!

I’m a tea-aholic and have been for quite some time. I only brew looseleaf and 99% of the time use a tea ball. I used to use the self-fill tea bags, but they are too expensive and too wasteful for someone like me who drinks 3+ cups of tea a day, often different varieties.

I voted for the tea press. I usually use a bag for convience, but love loose leaf tea. I find the balls to be a little to messy. I like the tea press, I have 2, one for at home and one in a travel mug. My at home one isn’t the best, bits of tea leaves tend to get through. The basket looks like it’s worthwhile trying.

I love seeing these tea-lovers! Someone got us the Teavana Perfect Tea maker, and I’ve totally been enjoying it and making tons of tea! I’m not exactly sure which of the poll options that is. 🙂
(However, I have discovered that their loose tea itself is literally 3-5x more expensive than buying it from a coffee shop near us that sells it loose. 2 oz of tea should be like $3. NOT $10 as teavana seems to think it should!)

I would love to try loose leaf, but I’m a freak, I have to have the milk and tea in first then add the boiling water 😀

Where do you all even buy loose leave tea? Teavana is SO expensive!
