How to Make Tea Using a Coffee Pot
It is possible to make tea using a coffee pot. This article is useful if you want to brew a large pot of herbal tea that you want to keep warm for hours, whether you'll use it for a tea party, caring for someone with a cold or flu, or just wanted to keep a warm storage you can always count on for a cup or two.
Teabags in the filter basket or carafe
Fill the glass carafe with water and pour it's contents into the reservoir just like when making a regular coffee.
Remove and rinse the filter basket from previous brews of either coffee or tea.
Select your choice of teas.Use approximately one teabag per one cup of water. Removing the filter, place the tea bags into the basket and back into its compartment. Replace the carafe on the plate then turn the coffee maker on. (For stronger tea and less mess, put the teabags inside the carafe instead in the filter basket).
Teabag in the cup
Brew hot water using the coffee maker by pouring water into the reservoir, and turning the machine on until the water has boiled.
Place the teabag in your cup and pour the hot water in.
Soak the tea bag for three minutes.Enjoy!

QuestionAre there remains left on the cloth?wikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerIf it is a dissolving powder of tea, then no, but an herb mix will have extra mass left over.Thanks!
QuestionIf I have tea in powder form can I just put it in the coffee maker basket and brew it like coffeewikiHow ContributorCommunity AnswerYou could, but if the powder is very fine, it might seep through into the pot. Also, if it is a tee requiring a longer steep, like black tea, you may not get the desired results.Thanks!
QuestionIf I use a coffeemaker just to heat water, do I need the basket? Is it better for the machine to leave it in?Dee TatreauCommunity AnswerIf it's an electric percolator, it might need it to function properly. In a drip style, the basket is just a basket you can lift in or out, so it's optional. You can just use a stone tea pot for heating water too.Thanks!
