Can I brew tea with an AeroPress coffee maker?Updated 2 years ago

Yes, you can use an AeroPress Original or AeroPress Go coffee maker to brew tea using the AeroPress inverted method. Insert the plunger an inch or so into the chamber and then set the AeroPress coffee maker on a counter with the plunger down.  Put the tea into the chamber, pour hot water into the chamber, and let it steep.  When ready, put a filter into the filter cap, screw the cap onto the chamber, carefully invert it onto your mug, and press.

Caution: Brewing with an AeroPress coffee maker upside down is less stable and therefore prone to tipping over and exposing the user to hot liquid.
