How to Make a Tea Bag
Materials and Tools:
needle and thick thread (embroidery floss)
pen and pencil
loose leaf tea
Step 1: Trace Circle
Trace a circle onto a coffee filter using a small cup, approximately 2 ½ inches in diameter.
Step 2: Sew Circle
Keeping the filter in tact, begin to sew around the circle leaving a small opening at the top.
Step 3: Fill Bag
Cut the circle out, and fill opening with loose leaf tea of your choice.
Step 4: Attach Special Note
Sew the opening closed, leaving enough extra string to attach a special note. To serve, pour boiling water into a cup, and let the tea bag steep for 4-6 minutes.
The earthy flavor from the green tea complements the salty roasted almonds and chocolate drizzle in this matcha green tea biscotti recipe.
