Sorry, nothing earth-shattering here. A good cup of tea still takes a bit of time to make. With the Keurig it's a little faster thanks to the rapid heating of the water, but you still have to let it steep. I bought some Celestial Seasonings Iced Black Tea K Cups yesterday and the ingredients listed were black tea and tea extract, which, I'm assuming, is why you can brew a cup of tea so quickly if you use these. However, I thought the tea that it brewed was too strong and bitter. I wasn't thrilled. Here's how I do it: I use my Finum tea brewing basket and the appropriate measure of tea. Select the cup size I want and brew. Let it steep 3-5 minutes. Drink as is or pour over ice. Not hard. With this method, I can't brew directly into a cup of ice but I don't really mind. Did I say I tried putting tea into a used K Cup the same way I make coffee? Ha! Light brown colored water that did not taste at all like tea.
