Making Tea With Your Nespresso Style Capsule Coffee Machine

Nespresso coffee pod style machines are expensive to run with coffee capsules in boxes of 10 and for the majority of cases, always expensive. 

There are a range of machines and makers, the machine I purchased and used in my experiments is the Espressina Pod Machine

Espressina Pod Coffee Machine

The best known coffee machine is Nespresso, from the George Cloon ads fame.  They differ from the others in offering a wide range of coffees, with regular marketings of specialist coffees (at specialist prices).  Quite often people purchase these machines or are given these machines as presents for the quality of the coffee they produce, but also the convenience of filling it, switching it on, putting in the pod and hitting the button.  For people with busy lives they are a welcome relief.

So if the coffee is expensive, and I'm boiling a kettle constantly to make tea, then this machine isn't as useful or functional as I first thought, right?

What drew me to this machine was its marketing that it could make coffee and Tea, so I tried some of their tea, 

Tespresso - English Breakfast Tea
Unfortunately, I didn't like it.  I personally like my tea weak and not full of Tannin, but I found their tea was like water.  

The fact that they did Tea pods at all, made me think and I decided to experiment, I like experimenting.

  • So opened up one of the espresso Plastic Coffee Capsules, empty it, and then fill it with tea.  I tried this and ended up with a mess.  
  • Then I thought why not just put a tea bag in the pod and put it in the machine

This worked but it wasn't quite as simple as that, as I explain in my video.

I hope you like the video and share it with other people you know with Nespresso Pod using coffee machines.  I now make all my cups of tea using this method, its:

  • quick
  • reliable
  • clean

I can throughly recommend it, especially as it saves money on expensive coffee pods.


After getting a lot of capsule leakage from the Espresso Machine.

I now have the KRUPS Nespresso Inissia and love it

Its cheap small and easy to use, I'd throughly recommend it and my #fixed1tMONEYSAVINGtips make it all the better as can be seen in my fixed1t YouTube playlist
