Greetings! I’ve gotten the question a time or two: Snowshoe, I don’t have a tea strainer, what can I do?

Brewing loose leaf tea should not be difficult.  There are a number of useful products to help you.  You use a tea ball, a tea strainer, a reusable muslin tea bag, or disposable tea bags. You can toss the leaves loose into a pot and use a strainer over your cup, or purchase a teapot that has a basket infuser.  BUT what can you do if you don’t have any of those things?  Do you have a coffee filter and a rubber band?  Cheese cloth and some string?  How about paper towel and a clothespin?  You can make tea. 🙂
