Place a teaspoon of loose tea in the French press, add a cup of hot water, close the lid and let it brew. For any other tea (black, green, oolong), try it as you go to determine the ideal brewing time. It is also important that, if you have two French press coffee machines, you use one for tea and the other for coffee.
Star anise, nutmeg, cinnamon sticks, peppercorns, cardamom pods, roasted cumin and caraway seeds, dill seeds, anything big enough for the French press to crack down on is free hunting.Take a deep and dramatic breath, launch your space kaftan around you, and tell the little ones that when things get tough, you move on.
If you already have a French printing press (I swear by my now discontinued Bodum Young), you're used to the fuss and the method. If you already have a French press and you love tea, try using your French Press coffee maker to soak the tea leaves for a full flavor full of flavor. The French press is most commonly used to prepare freshly brewed coffee, however, it can also be used to prepare tea. The bitter alkaloids found in coffee tend to remain in the metal components of the French press, so be sure to scrub the plunger.
