How to Make Perfect Tea With a French Press

French Press Tea Recipe

  1. Pre-warm your french press with hot water to keep the temperature even throughout the process.
  2. We recommend using a separate french press coffee maker for tea because coffee creates an oil residue over time.
  3. Scoop the tea into your french press and add hot water
  4. Check out the table below for water temperatures and steep time based on which type of tea you’re using.
  5. When the tea is done steeping, press the plunger of the french press all the way down to the bottom.
  6. Pour and enjoy! You can check out our more detailed video tutorial here.

  5. Stir lightly, place the plunger at the top, and let brew for 4 (four) minutes.
  6. After four minutes, push the plunger all the way down and pour your coffee over ice.
