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.
