This glass Iced Tea Maker is designed by For Life for making cold-brew iced tea. Simply place your tea leaves in the body of the jug, fill with room temperature water, and place in your refrigerator overnight. This slow brewing technique results in a smooth iced tea that has less astringency. When you are ready to serve, the 0.5 mm hole stainless-steel filter catches tea leaves and gives you smooth pouring. A double ring silicone gasket ensures the lid from falling off when serving. As a plus, the filter and silicone gasket are easy to take apart for cleaning your iced tea brewing equipment. See a step-by-step how to video below.
The body is made of hand-blown borosilicate glass. Dishwasher safe, however we recommend hand washing. Large holds 50 oz. Small holds 34 oz.
Made in China.
Tested and meets or exceeds FDA, EC, and California Proposition 65 standards.

This is definitely a great product but I gave it four stars because it is a challenge to clean out. I love leaving looseleaf tea and creating all sorts of fun tea blends. It's great to share with the size of the larger one.
It appears to be scientific glass but I am still so very careful with it as I am afraid I am going to break it. And I would be so lost!

No kidding, I use this pot daily. I have used it for both the cold brew (steps can be found under the eco brew tips from Arbor Tea) and also hot brew. They advertise it as cold brew, but it works just as good for hot brews. The fact that the mesh screen can be removed for cleaning is a MAJOR plus. Just be careful when removing the rubber rim, I get nervous I am going to tear mine. I ordered the smaller pot and I get 2 large cups from mine. I chose the smaller one as it fits neatly in my fridge.

I actually bought this with another earth friendly alternative in mind--sun tea. Tried it after receiving it yesterday and was super happy with the results! I can now make sun tea with my loose leaf. The only reason I did not give this product 5 leaves is because the glass is the "super thin" type and I feel nervous handling it. Which also means my kiddos are no longer allowed to help Mommy make sun tea b.c I am scared they will break it.

We are never without iced tea since we purchased this brewer. The larger 50 oz. size is perfect for the two of us. Each night we select the tea for the next day and simply put it in the frig to brew. The tea is always smooth and is never bitter. With such a large selection of teas to choose from we are thinking about purchasing a second one.

Making iced tea with room-temperature water not only reduces the energy use of boiling water, with this brewer it results in a smooth tea without the bitterness of iced tea made with boiling water. Even after letting the brewer sit in my fridge for several days with the leaves still inside, my Thai iced tea wasn't a bit bitter. So glad to have this product!

We have tried everything under the sun to brew ice tea that meets my husbands standards. Well this was the Christmas answer. Not only does it look great it does what it should. Couldn't believe it would filter all the loose tea, wonderful strainer. This along with a stump tea pot, Rooibos tea, measuring spoon, sampler of Rooibos tea, Arbor Teas made his Christmas
