How to filter tea after brewing?!

Question: How to filter tea after brewing!?
I have recently started to use loose green tea leafs to make my tea (previously used tea bags)!. I love it but have a small problem!. After I brew for 2-3 minutes, I filter the contents of my teapot (tea with the loose leafs) into my cup using a strainer!.

After filtering with a small kitchen strainer I still see some really small pieces of tea (dust) in my tea cup!. What can I do about this!? Is using a coffee filter a good idea!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

tea steeper is a good option definitely
coffee filter does the job
a strainer with small holes obviously

Good luck!Www@FoodAQ@Com

I prefer whole-leaf tea to the dust you get in commercial tea bags, but also found it inconvenient to use, especially when making a single cup at the office!. I have since found that you can buy empty tea bags!. I fill them myself with the blend of tea that I want!. They work wonderfully: the tea tastes the same as if I'd brewed the loose leaf, but I don't get any residue, and it's neat!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

How fine is your kitchen strainer!?

They actually have little mesh tea steepers that you can buy, you should try that : )Www@FoodAQ@Com

Coffee filter will do the trick!. Www@FoodAQ@Com

could use a pair of panty hose ( I have used panty hose for home made wine)

A coffee filter is a great idea though Www@FoodAQ@Com
