I used fine loose tea in the basket, ran the espresso machine just a couple
seconds to pre-infuse the leaves with hot water, and let them sit for 3
minutes. Then I ran the double-shot program until I got 8 ounces. The
pre-infusion step gave me a darker tea.
Check the video of the two brit nerds and their spinning tea maker .. all
you need is an espresso machine .. All you really need to do is cut the
bottom of a plastic cup and cut a small hole in the middle to slow down the
brewing process in your espresso .. you will get the same results .. one
bag of tea is fine for one cup .. However I like my tea like I like my
women .. strong and BLACK so I use two bags. I also like tea bagging the
ladies, but that is another story 😉
yeah, and the bags are not even necessary since the filter is built-in.
Hehe, …or tea banging the ladies 😀
YOU CAN RUN IT TWISE REMBER A Espresso MAKER WILL EXTRACT THE TEA WAY
BETTER SO IF YOU USE THE MAKER 3 TIMES ON THE SAME 2 BAGS THE 3RD TIME IT
WILL BE A LITTLE STRONGER THEN IF YOU MADE IT IN A CUP OF HOT WATER
Fist off .. you can cut the bottom of a plastic cup and put a small hole in
the bottom. Why? This provides extra pressure that is why. The hole should
be about the same size as the hole where the espresso comes out. TWO .. get
the Lipton big tea bags .. open up three .. that’s right three put the tea
into the espresso the same way you would with coffee. It will take longer
to brew but the flavor will be rich and the tea black. You can repeat two
more times without adding more bags, BLACK TEA
I use just one tea bag and get 3 nice cups of tea from it, using the same
exact method. I’m no connoisseur, just someone who drinks tea instead of
coffee sometimes. Now and then I’ll add a dried apricot to the basket for
flavor. The apricot is plumped up and edible afterwords.
Cool! I never used fruits but I used ginger on several occasions with a
blend of green tea fusion.
