I love loose leaf tea and using a french press to brew it makes it even easier. A french press is typically used for the brewing coffee process, but I love brewing tea in it because it is thoughtless. It allows me to brew more than one cup at a time which is very convenient.

    We do use a French press for our coffee, but a porcelain teapot for our loose leaf tea- Imperial Dragonwell. We get two infusions from the tea, and for the coffee, if we want a second cup we just add one fresh heaping tablespoon to the grounds and add hot water again, thrifty both ways and works just fine for us.
