Tea Tasting Can

Make loose leaf tea without a fancy teacup or teapot!

This hardware hack is for those times when you want to make tea but you have no teapot. One common solution is a tea tasting cup, which is a cup that lets you brew proper tea in a cup and then remove the leaves afterwards.

Supplies

How to make

  1. Drain all liquid from the soda can
  2. Remove the lid of the soda can using the can opener
  3. Poke many holes in the soda can with regular spacing using your sharp pokey thing
