Making Loose Tea in Your Dorm Room

by Shannon on August 24, 2010

If you are a tea drinker and living in a dorm away at college, then I know how difficult it can be to have some of the comforts of home. Making loose tea in your dorm room though is pretty simple with a few basic things. Here is what you will need:

  1. An electric tea kettle. Plug in, add water, and turn on. You can have hot water in just a few minutes.
  2. Loose Tea Travel Mug. The best way to brew tea is in a travel mug that you can take with you. Let's face it, most of college happens outside of your dorm room so you won't be sitting around sipping a cup there. Instead you need something that you can add loose tea to, pour in hot water, and go.
  3. Loose Tea of course. I recommend stocking up on some green tea to help keep your immune system in tip top shape. The caffeine won't hurt either for those late night study sessions.

Here are some items that will be perfect. Remember, living in a dorm does not mean you must give up your loose tea.

I drank a lot of tea in college. College was where I first discovered greener oolongs, which is when I think I started really loving tea! Still, I was mostly drinking tea from teabags, in the dining hall.

I didn’t drink much tea in college, but it was definitely from teabags too. So jealous of all the options available now.
