  • This is a serious pitcher, for serious people, who drink serious tea.   

    If you are hosting a large family gathering, hydrating a sports team, or working in the garden all day, this is the iced tea pitcher for you.  It's 68 ounce capacity means that it holds more than half a gallon of tea.  And, it's unique large-basket design and high-quality materials means that you can brew your teas right in this pitcher, all in less than ten minutes. 

     Why is there a large metal tube in my

    pitcher?

     That is the infuser basket!  Th e key to a good cup of tea, other than having great tea leaves, using clean water, and following the steeping instructions, is having a large infuser basket.  This pitcher has a spacious infuser basket that make steeping half a gallon of even large-leafed teas, such as Citron Green or White Peach,so easy.  The stainless steel infuser basket can a beautiful clear pitcher of tea. The whole push down lid assembly   is removable to make cleaning your pitcher super easy.

    Brew your teas right in the pitcher!

     This pitcher is made of borosilicate glass more commonly known as pyrex.  This means that you can brew your loose tea and ice it, right in the pitcher, without any fear of it shattering.  Simply add your tea to the infuser basket (we recommend using about 8 teaspoons), pour boiling water over it, and when it is done steeping, remove the infuser basket, add cold water or ice cubes to chill it.  Removing the tea infuser basket  will prevent the tea from continuing to steep, thus preventing over-steeping.   

    Light weight, heavy-duty

    Because this pitcher is made of borosilicate glass, it is much lighter than it's tempered glass peers.  In spite of being able to brew and hold more than half a gallon of tea, it weighs just 1.3 pounds when empty.  If the infuser is removed, it is even lighter, weighing just 1.15 pounds!  This pitcher is large enough to keep drinks filled at a large family gathering, but light enough too be easily passed around the table.   

    What's your favorite color?

     We carry this pitcher with red, lime, turquoise, orange, black, and white accents.  Regardless of the color scheme happening in your kitchen, one of these pitchers should match your decor.

    Suggested Pairings:

    If you're looking for a loose tea to brew in your new iced tea  pitcher, we recommend starting with these.

    Pina Colada- This tea tastes, quite simply, like summer.  It is a complex blend of coconut, mango, pineapple, and apples but tastes just like its name summer time cocktail. white peach summer iced tea loose tea

    White Peach- This is a fresh, delicate tea.  White teas are much less bitter than greens or blacks, with a more subtle flavor.  That subtlety allows the peach notes of this tea to truly shine.  It's a sweet summer afternoon transformed into an antioxidant-rich tea.

    Blue Sapphire- This is the tea for people who are looking for 'plain' tea.  This is an unflavored black tea, with a very middle-of-the-road profile.  Black teas can vary widely depending upon where they are grown.  These can range from very the bold and astringent Indian  Ceylon to the more mild and sweet Chinese Keemun Panda #1.  Blue Sapphire is a Kenyan tea, and it's flavor is about as standard as you're going to find in our shop.  No surprises here.

    Black Currant- If you're playing the universal appeal angle, but still want something distinctly summery, this may be the loose tea for you.  Black currant is a traditionally English delight, with strong berry notes accompanied by a rich black tea.  It's a little bit sweet, a little bit savory, and every bit wonderful. This will make a memorable iced tea at your party.

    Citron Green- This fresh green tea is made even more crisp by the addition of citrus.  While Citron Green can be difficult to brew properly in traditional tea balls, because the leaves expand so much,  Your new Moroccan Mint loose green peppermint iced tea infuser basket will handle this tea with no problems.  The citrus in this tea cuts through the grassy, vegetable-y flavor that tends to turn some people off from green teas.  If you're looking for something even more refreshing, we recommend Moroccan Mint.  This green tea is given a cool and refreshing boost by the addition of peppermint.  The taste is reminiscent of mint juleps, but the antioxidant content is that of a green tea.  

     

    Looking for something a little different?

    Does giving up 18 ounces of brewing capacity sound worth getting a more elegant design, and the capacity to cold-brew?  If so, check out our slightly smaller, but more versatile cold-steeping pitcher.  cold-steeping loose tea pitcher

  • Steeping Instructions

    1 teaspoon per 8 oz of water. Fluffy leaves like some Oolongs, use 2 teaspoons. For stronger tea use more tea.   There is no hard and fast rules on steeping except over steeping may make tea bitter.   If you are unsure, try cooler water and shorter steeping times. Below are general steeping instructions.  For best results, follow the steeping instructions that came with your tea.
    To estimate water temperature use a thermometer or wait a 2-3 minutes after the water stops boiling. Then the water temperature should be about 165- 185 F. You can gauge water temperature by looking at the bubbles forming at the bottom of the tea kettle.  When pin size bubbles form, the water temperature is about 185F. To take the guess work out of water temperatures, try our electric tea kettle.
