A diatomaceous earth filter looks like your best bet then. It'll remove particles you didn't even know were there and reduce turbidity without affecting the tannins you want. I used on extensively when I participated in competitions and was always amazed at how much clearer the water got when I thought it was already clear.

I've never regretted over engineering a system, but often regretted under engineering one.
