Bodum Ceylon Ice Tea Maker
on September 14, 2008
I read many reviews before purchasing this item. My thoughts:
1. Absolutely the easiest way to make great iced tea. I put 10 tea bags into the infuser, then fill the pitcher half way with boiling water. Stir a little, then add sugar. I let it steep 15 minutes, longer if you want it stronger. Then pour the contents into a container and right into the fridge.
2. People complain the infuser gets dirty. Solution: use tea bags instead of loose leaf tea. I bet soaking the infuser in some bar keepers friend would dissolve a lot of that residue.
3. The lid is flimsy. Since I read reviews before I bought it, I know to be careful with the lid. The lid is the worst feature, very flimsy.
A very EASY way to make a pitcher of ice tea. Using tea bags, clean up is a SNAP. The infuser works quite well and imparts the flavor quickly.
