For both tea or coffee, you can brew up tea, make regular or instant coffee and just pour, brush or splatter it over your paper. The technique I use includes the grounds.
You can literally throw it onto the paper, drop it on, spread it on, then squeeze the whole filter to have a few odd drops, you can add a little coffee if there is some left or a few drops of water on the filter and squeeze.
Leave the paper to dry, then just shake off the grounds, brush as needed...

|Lay flat to dry|
|As it nears completely dry I place it between blotters or newsprint, weight it down over night. By the next morning it should be nice and flat. Do not leave it between blotters for more then a day it could mold.|
