See Shabbos Kehalacha (vol. 2 12:39-42). Borer is not a problem if you don't want either thing but just want to separate them in order to dispose of them properly. (For example separating recycling from other garbage, papers for geniza from papers for garbage, Shemita fruit peels from other fruit peels to throw out). Similarly here were you don't want either ...

My understanding is that it is not Borer (separating) in accordance to how SA Horav explains in Hilcos YT (500:18) the reason why Nikkur (separating the forbidden fats and veins from an animal) is permitted on Yom Tov, thogh it may appear like Borer (separating), is because really it's all one Min (species) with the meat it's just that the Torah forbade that ...

In Shemirath Shabbath Kehilchatah 3:56 a. One may use a water tap fitted with a filter. b.

You could find the appropriate combination of stringencies to make it a problem: Kalei Habishul - if you would hold like the Mishna Berura (318:42) that we suspect everything of being kalei habishul (cooking even in a kli sheni) unless it is explicitly identified as otherwise. Kli shlishi - if you would hold like the Chazon Ish that there is no such thing ...

Shemirath Shabbath, by R' YY Neuwirth (3:58), states very clearly that pouring water over tea leaves resting in a filter that is suspended over a cup, so that water passes through the filter into the cup, is not a problem of Borer. Using water cooled by transferring it to a third vessel (Keli Shelishi) is given there as an acceptable method for brewing ...

According to Star-K article, no: Since many people enjoy their tea mainly on Shabbos, it would be appropriate to briefly mention the do’s and don’ts of tea preparation on Shabbos.

The Baal HaTanya, in his Piskei HaSiddur, Hilcheta Rabbata L'Shabbata, rules that one should remove a fly from cup of wine by spilling out the wine until the fly leaves the cup.
