Iced Tea Essentials

What I use to make my iced tea at home again and again.

  • Glass teapot with strainer
    My go-to teapot to make tea quick and without a mess.
  • 2 quart pitcher made for making ice chilled tea
    BPA-free plastic pitcher with infuser.
  • Cold brew iced tea maker
    A glass pitcher with infuser to make cold brew tea a breeze.
  • Electric kettle
    A must for all tea drinkers to set the water temperature just right. Great for not turning on the stove on hot days.
  • Cocktail Shaker or water bottle
  • Silicone ice cube trays
    They’re annoying to get the ice cubes out of the tray but they are the perfect size for drinks.
