Make Your Own Tea Bags!

Make Your Own Tea Bags

The French call them Sachets or Filtres.
Brits and Americans call them Bags.

Call them what you will...
Tea filters make it so easy to enjoy your favorite loose teas!

The' Filtres

Make Your Own Tea Bags

1) Place 1 teaspoon of tea per cup in the filter

2) Place the filter in your cup and fill with freshly boiled water

3)  Infuse your tea for it's proper infusion time

4)  Remove the filter and throw it away

Voila'..a perfect cup of tea!

I first purchased filtres a' the' (tea filters) years ago in Paris.  I love enclosing tea filters with luxury loose tea gifts to friends. They are such a convenient way to enjoy loose tea when you don't want to brew an entire pot of tea!
