If you read our blog at all, you’ll know that we have a special place in our hearts for the Ninja Coffee Bar. We use ours daily (sometimes several times a day), and it always makes great coffee. But one thing that you might not realize if you own one that is that is has more talents that simply making coffee. Believe it or not, we have been using it to make really good tea as well!
One of the the reasons we constantly reccomend it besides being well made is that it’s versatile and you can get a lot out of it for what you invest into it. So when we realized that making tea in the Ninja was possible, we were naturally very excited. Buying tea in bulk can bring down its cost, and the Ninja makes it easy to brew whole tea leaf. The process is straightforward and is great for brewing large batches of tea as well as single cups.
How to Brew Tea in the Ninja Coffee Bar
- Place a #4 coffee filter in the Ninja Coffee Bar. You can opt not to use the filter, but for teas that are extremely fine, it can come through into the batch. If you don’t mind a little sediment in your tea, then go for it, but the filters are always an option for those that don’t
- Place about 1 cup of dried tea leaves into the filter. We have found the chamomile works well as the leaves are larger and don’t make too much of a mess in the Ninja.
- For the brewing, we use the “specialty brew” mode because it seems to have the best brew timing for extracting the tea well.
- Store in the fridge or enjoy hot.
Making tea with the Ninja is really that easy. We you buy tea in bulk, it can save you a lot of money but also be hard to brew without a dedicated tool for doing so. So if you already have the Ninja Coffee Bar, this is just another added benefit!
