How to Make Perfect Tea With a French Press


Review: KONA French Press
Buy at Amazon

I have never used a french press before, but after the Alabama Tornado a couple years ago I realized that having a non-electric coffee maker might be something preppers should have.

So when Kona contacted me and asked if I wanted to review their french press I said sure (they supplied the press, but they aren’t paying for the review).

I found the press to be very simple, and I liked how the press is made of wire screen, and is replaceable (it came with extra, but I think you could also make it).

What I did not like was the fact that the container was glass.  While this might not be an issue for normal usage, this isn’t something you would take camping.

Since I don’t drink coffee, I tried tea.  After drinking french press tea, I went and bought loose tea, because I thought it tasted much better than what comes out of my “Mr. T” tea machine.

Once again, I have received nothing except the press in return for my honest opinion, and my honest opinion is that this is pretty useful but since I don’t drink fancy coffee I am going to put this press in the closet until I need it to make tea when I don’t have electricity for my Mr. Tea machine.

  1. The Kona French Press is easy to use. The filter traps the residue at the bottom that makes washing easy too. And the internal surface is made of stainless steel. This is why it is a hit with users. The design is high quality.
