Hario Bright Coffee & Tea Press:
The French press is a classic brewing tool, but its usefulness doesn't stop at just coffee. If you're also a tea lover, you can get the most out of your French press by using it to brew loose leaf teas. Today, we'll go through this brewing method using Hario's take on the classic tool, the Bright Coffee & Tea Press.
If you use your French press for coffee, be sure to clean it thoroughly before you start to brewing to ensure that the leftover oils from the coffee don't affect the taste of your tea.
What You'll Need
- 1:60-75 coffee to water
- 8-10 grams of tea, depending on the leaf
- 600 grams hot water
