Last Update: 29 Mar, 2023

Living ecologically is important to protect our planet. Whether it’s food, clothing, or consumption in general, we can all do something for our surroundings. We bring you instructions on how to brew tea ecologically.


Before starting to brew tea, it is important to choose the right form of tea strainer. It is important to choose a reusable strainer. A metal strainer is most often recommended.

Method of cooking

When you have a tea strainer, it’s time to cook. The best way to green tea is to use the ideal amount of water. It is a terrible shame to pour already-heated water into the sink

Water source

If you have tap water available, use it. Tap water is the best choice for brewing tea as it is generally the healthiest option. Bottled water is not needed to brew tea

Next usage

When you brew tea, you can use the used infused tea to make another tea. Either on its own or you add new tea to already infused tea. If you think the infused tea is no longer usable, pour it into your own compost or organic waste.

Why to brew tea organically?

Although making tea seems like a trifle that doesn’t make sense to deal with, the opposite is true. Brewing tea is an often repetitive activity. Every small saving in one cooking can add up nicely in the end, and you will save not only money but also the environment.
