Coffee Tea Bags
Hey everyone! Erin here again to share with you about another tea-related idea. Coffee Tea Bags. Have you ever heard of these? They are just like tea bags, but with coffee instead. You can buy them at the store. But who does that anymore? Instead, why not make them at home?
I used a reusable tea bag that I posted about a few months ago. Then I poured about a tablespoon or more of coffee grounds (I used my coffee grinder) into the bag and steeped it in boiled water for about 3-5 minutes or so. & Enjoy!
These are great to used when you only want to make one cup of coffee and don’t want to dirty the coffee pot or French press. So easy. So simple. So delicious! These would also be a great way to take your favorite coffee drink on vacation or camping without having to pack your whole coffee pot! You could also use these to take to work if your office doesn’t offer a coffee pot.
But of course I like to drink my coffee with cream. Yum yum! How do you drink your coffee? You could even make your own basic coffee creamer to go with your Coffee Tea Bags or you regular daily cup with this simple recipe:
Homemade Coffee Creamer
What You Need:
- 1 cup whole milk
- 1 cup heavy whipping cream
- 4 tablespoons maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Mix the first 3 ingredients together on the stove top with a whisk until they steam. Remove from heat and add in vanilla extract. Stir well and pour into a jar to store in the fridge. This will last just over a week. Shake jar before use.
These would be fun to give as gifts to your coffee-lover friends. You could always make Coffee Tea Bags and fill them up and toss a few in a jar or gift bag. I know I would love love love receiving that as a gift. (hint hint).
