Just put a little of your loose tea in your reusable kcup and brew. Most teas are strong enough that you can get 2 or 3 of the large cup from that one serving of tea. I also like to add Stevita Supreme – 50pkts – 1.8 oz / Packet. Stevia is much better for you than either sugar or nutrasweet/aspartame. Also, its herbally taste goes well with your tea.
As easy as it is to brew k-cup tea and coffee, it is a little more expensive than using a regular tea bag or coffee maker. Each k-cup costs around 42 cents each. Which is way less expensive than going to your local coffee shop, but much more expensive than more traditional brewing methods.
Which begs the question, can the kcups be reused?
Here is what I discovered. If you run a cup through, the machine will not process another cup through that kcup, unless you open the brewing chamber and close it. What I do is:
Get a large heat-resistant container, I use a large measuring cup. For Iced Tea, I half fill with ice. Put it under the brewing area and brew a large tea. Reopen and close the brewing chamber, and select another large or medium. I have done this as many as three times. The first cup is a lot stronger than subsequent cups, but together they create a pretty mellow brew. I finish up by adding water to fill the container. I pour myself a glass and put the rest in the refrigerator for use the rest of the day. This reduces the cost of the kcups by at least half.
