Loose Leaf Tea in Keurig MachinesIs your countertop crowded with a coffee maker and a kettle alongside the many other appliances of daily life? Perhaps you are holding onto your kettle because you prefer loose leaf tea and simply cannot imagine giving up the speed with which a kettle can heat water for steeping tea. Your Keurig K-Cup coffee maker is capable of replacing that old kettle, though, even if you did not think so before. Keurig machines heat water very quickly, often making them as fast or faster than the average kettle. You may know this from using tea K-Cups, but did you know that you can brew loose leaf tea with your Keurig coffee maker? It is true, but you will find that the addition of one small accessory will make it far easier to brew loose leaf tea with a Keurig K-Cup coffee maker.

My K-Cup, My Loose Leaf Tea

Keurig K-Cup tea is quite good, but if you are serious about tea, you probably have a collection of loose leaf tea that you prefer to steep with a variety of filters, screens, tea balls, or homemade tea bags. One can find oneself quite overburdened with fetishistic equipment when one loves tea, but just the addition of a single My K-Cup reusable filter is enough to turn your Keurig brewer into an excellent single serving tea maker. The My K-Cup is a reusable filter specifically designed for use in K-Cup coffee makers. It makes it possible to brew any ground coffee with your Keurig, and it also works excellently with loose leaf tea. It adds a functionality to K-Cup coffee makers that many desire and broadens the range of options available to you. It is machine washable and easy to use with the added benefit of improving the environmental-friendliness of your Keurig K-Cup coffee maker. By combining the My K-Cup with your Keurig K-Cup coffee maker, you can steep any loose leaf tea just as easily as you can brew any regular tea K-Cup. It may take some practice with various cup volumes to get a specific tea that you prefer just right, but once you do, enjoying loose leaf tea in a Keurig coffee maker is a wonderful and easy experience.


  • You might want to prepare a coarse loose tea if you are using a reusable cup. The tea in commercial k-cup pods seems to be ground down as small as coffee. Maybe if you have a clean coffee grinder and keep it just for tea, the way some people have one for spices, it might lead to better brewing at the somewhat lower temperatures that Keurig uses.

  • Good bye coffee, hello tea !!!!!! lol… I love great tea, especially in the morning!!! ?

  • Thanks for this advice! I noticed that the Keurig “My K-cup” reusable filter instructions did not note whether non-coffee products might be appropriately used. Do you happen to know if using the same “My K-cup” reusable filter interchangeably with coffee and tea affects the taste/flavor of either brew?
