My husband loves ice tea and we have tried several ice tea makers over the years and they were all made of poor plastic and would break after only a couple months. After returning and exchanging iced tea makers several times we finally gave up until we discovered the Capresso Iced Tea Maker.
With the Capresso Iced Tea Maker you can custom brew a refreshing pitcher of iced tea at the touch of a button. Iced tea can be served and stored in the beautiful glass pitcher.

Setting up your Iced Tea Maker:
The set up was really easy. All I had to do was add my favorite loose tea or tea bags to the reusable filter. Removable water tank can be filled directly at the sink for convenience. I filled the glass pitcher with ice to the ice level marking on the pitcher prior to brewing. You can also add fresh or frozen fruit before or after brewing for a refreshing tea blend. Adjust the brew strength with the slide on the front of the machine, for stronger tasting tea slide lever to the right. Serve iced tea directly from the pitcher that can also be stored in the refrigerator after brewing.
If you like to get creative with your teas you can find a recipe book with 18 delicious recipes, with more recipes on the Capresso blog (www.capressoblog.com). We spent a lot of years buying ice tea makers under $20.00. I am confident that the Capresso Ice Tea Maker will last us much longer than a couple of months because of how well it is made. I love that it also comes with a 1 year warranty. My husband is so happy to have Iced Tea in the fridge again!
The Capresso Iced Tea Maker is also perfect for iced coffee beverages, however it is recommended to use a separate filter for coffee so there is no flavor transfer. Additional filters and pitchers are available for purchase.
