I love drinking tea, but I also love the convenience of using my Ninja Coffee Maker. So, I thought, why not try making tea in my coffee maker? And let me tell you, it’s a game-changer! Making tea in a Ninja Coffee Maker is not only easy but also adds a refreshing twist to your caffeine fix. In this article, I will guide you through the process of making tea in a Ninja Coffee Maker, step by step.

Gather Your Ingredients

Before we start making our tea, let’s gather all the necessary ingredients. For making tea in a Ninja Coffee Maker, you will need the following:

1. Loose tea leaves or tea bags: Choose your favorite tea flavor, whether it’s black, green, herbal, or any other variety. You can use either loose tea leaves or tea bags, depending on your preference.

2. Water: Good quality water is essential for making a great cup of tea. Fill up the water reservoir of your Ninja Coffee Maker with the desired amount of water needed for your tea.

3. Tea Infuser or Tea Bag Holder (optional): If you’re using loose tea leaves, you might want to use a tea infuser or a tea bag holder to prevent the leaves from floating freely in the water.

4. Sweeteners and add-ins (optional): If you like your tea sweet or want to add any other flavors like honey, lemon, or milk, keep them handy.

Prepare Your Ninja Coffee Maker

Once you have gathered all your ingredients, it’s time to prepare your Ninja Coffee Maker for making tea. Follow these simple steps:

1. Clean the Ninja Coffee Maker: Make sure your coffee maker is clean and free of any coffee residue. You don’t want your tea to taste like coffee.

2. Remove the coffee filter: Take out the coffee filter from the coffee maker. We won’t be needing it for making tea.

3. Rinse the coffee maker: Rinse the coffee maker with water to remove any traces of coffee flavor.

Brewing Tea in Your Ninja Coffee Maker

Now that your Ninja Coffee Maker is all set, let’s get started with brewing the tea.

1. Add tea leaves or tea bags: Depending on whether you’re using loose tea leaves or tea bags, add the desired amount into the coffee basket.

2. Place the coffee basket: Put the coffee basket back in its place in the Ninja Coffee Maker. Make sure it is securely placed.

3. Select the brew size: Choose the brew size according to your preference. If you like a strong cup of tea, go for a smaller brew size. For a milder flavor, opt for a larger brew size.

4. Start the brewing process: Press the brew button on your Ninja Coffee Maker to start the brewing process.

5. Steep the tea: Allow the tea to steep in the hot water for a few minutes, depending on the type of tea you are using. Black tea generally requires 3-5 minutes, while green tea needs 2-3 minutes. Remember, steeping time may vary, so follow the instructions on your tea packaging for best results.

6. Remove the tea bags or tea leaves: Once the steeping time is over, carefully remove the tea bags or tea leaves from the coffee basket. If you used loose tea leaves, don’t forget to remove the tea infuser or tea bag holder.

Customize Your Tea

Now that you have brewed your tea in the Ninja Coffee Maker, it’s time to customize it according to your taste preferences.

1. Add sweeteners: If you like your tea sweet, add sugar, honey, or any other sweetener of your choice. Stir well to dissolve the sweetener completely.

2. Add flavors: If you want to add some extra flavor to your tea, you can squeeze in some lemon juice or add a splash of milk. Experiment with different flavors to find your favorite combination.

3. Stir and serve: Give your tea a good stir to mix all the flavors together. Pour it into your favorite teacup or mug, and it’s ready to be enjoyed.


Making tea in a Ninja Coffee Maker is a refreshingly different way to enjoy your favorite hot beverage. It’s a simple process that allows you to experiment with different flavors and customize your tea to suit your taste buds.
