What is the best method for infusing a Siffleux ?

Drinking a Siffleux is as comforting as coffee.
I have several tips for truly enjoying your Siffleux , and it starts with having a good brewing method.

The right tools

First of all, the most important thing is to use the tools you have at home. At home, I have a French press and it is by far the best method for brewing a Siffleux , because with it, you can let it steep for as long as you want. This allows you to develop a more or less deep bitterness, depending on your taste.

A very simple method of infusion is to use a basket type herbal tea filter. This gives a lighter drink in the mouth. In this way, pour hot water over it and remove the filter immediately after pouring the water. It is possible to end up with crumbs in the cup if our filter does not have fine enough mesh. The one in the photo shows the ideal mesh size. The taste will appeal to herbal tea lovers, with less bitter and sweeter final notes on the palate.

When I tested the tea ball, I took the plunge. It doesn't brew well. Because we end up with barely colored and bland water. I don't recommend it. I no longer use my tea ball to brew a Siffleux . It's good for tea, that says it!

Does the coffee machine work?

Some people have tested putting their Siffleux in their coffee or espresso machine, and it works! The only problem is that we have to fill the filter basket and it takes a lot more Siffleux with this method. I recommend this method less because, in the long run, it becomes more expensive to do this.

In any case, to know if the infusion has gone well, there must be two important things: the color must be dark black. And it shouldn't taste like water.

Water temperature

When boiling water is poured over Siffleux , it deteriorates all the flavors and makes the beverage more bitter. At 90 degrees, it's the ideal temperature to bring all the flavors into your mouth! Since I don't measure the water temperature every time, my trick is to turn off my kettle just before it starts to boil. This way, I don't risk burning my drink.

Frothing milk

What is your favorite milk? Soy milk? Oats? From a cow? Fine! Well by frothing it and adding it to the Siffleux. That makes all the difference.

If you don't have a filter

I have a filter that goes with a travel mug. It is really practical for camping. With its very fine mesh, you are sure not to have any crumbs in the cup! You can put coffee, herbal teas and Siffleux in it. The only problem is that the water flows very slowly from the filter. So I stir the liquid to make it flow faster, and it works. Besides, with POP it goes very well.
