Flatten out the coffee filter and cut about 1 inch on either side. Decide which flavour combination you like best and pour one to two tablespoons of the loose leaf tea and flowers in the center of the rectangle.
Start by folding one of the long sides into the middle so that it covers the tea. Then repeat on the opposite side. Fold the filter in half to form a small rectangle.
Your packet will most likely be too long so you’ll want to trim some off the top to make it your desired size. Fold the two top corners of the filter down. This will create a triangle. Then fold the point of the triangle down.
Secure the top folds by stapling them to a piece of string. Place the string in the triangle fold and then fold it over. Pull the string up and secure with a staple. Download printable tea tags and cut them out. Glue the string into the crease of the tag and then glue the sides of the tag together.
These DIY tea bags are perfect for serving all year round.
