I'm so glad I found this tea brewer. I had the Bodum Ceylon brewer for about a year and I would imagine that it's one of the main alternatives to the Takeya.

I'll do a quick comparison:

Durability - honestly, i've only had it for about a month but it's obviously made of better quality, or at least, more durable material. i'm not overly concerned about it breaking. the bodum ceylon i had cracked after using it for about a year and with relatively light usage - as in not every day or even every week of the year. time will tell, but i don't think this is gonna break so easily. the quality feels better in the hand. doesn't feel cheap.

Infuser/Filtering ability - the holes on the bodum are large and so smallish leaf or the "dust" gets through quite easily into the brewed tea. the filter on the takeya is very fine and so far i've had clear cups of iced tea. i've been making white tea which has a larger leaf though. i'm thinking that it would do okay with japanese teas which tend have a very fine, almost ground up, leaf. i think takeya is a japanese brand so i would imagine they'd make a brewer that would do a reasonable job on their teas.

the infuser on the bodum though extends the length of the pitcher and so you don't need to fill it up. you would need to fill up the takeya to at least where the tea leaves are in the filter in order to make the tea. you may not want that much and you don't have the option of choosing.

Looks - the bodum was nice to look at but the material easily took on a cloudy, not so new looking appearance. it looked old after the first usage. i like the takeya - i like green top since that's my fave color.

I saw a larger version of this with a separate brewer - so you'd make the tea in one vessel and then store it in another. I went in search of something more practical and this is it.

1. Good capacity and design. Makes plenty of tea and stores on the fridge shelf or on the door.

2. Some don't like the fact that the filter screws into the lid. I do like it. If you make a whole container, that's enough loose tea to have small pieces of your tea floating out of the top of the filter if you make a whole pitcher.

3. I use a java bop for my iced tea and haven't found even a speck of leaf in the finished product. Great sized mesh.

4. I use the hot water method and it stays HOT for a really long time. At first I was annoyed that I had to wait so long for it to cool down before chilling it. Then I realized that it makes it great for a table pitcher for hot beverages. I can wait for something that performs a dual-purpose well.

5. Great for using herbs, etc. to infuse just about anything. Ideas? Please share!

I had been looking at this and my wife bought it for me recently. Yes, it's plastic, but that's not a big deal to me. In fact, the plastic seems to be pretty sturdy, and not thin/cheap. The filter is a plastic mesh, so we'll see how long that holds up. I use it for brewing black loose tea and it's been good so far. Just boil water in the electric kettle and pour in. I only use around 3 teaspoons of black tea in the filter when I fill this thing up and it's fine. I could probably get away with a little less, but I'm still experimenting. The filter unit screws into the the lid, which then screws on to the top. After 5 min, pull it out and rinse the filter. My electric kettle only holds up to 1.7 liters of water, so it doesn't quite fill up the pitcher. It's actually perfect, because I put ice cubes in to top it off. Then let it finish cooling on the counter for an hour or so. After that I can put the lid on and place in the fridge to finish cooling. It does the job I wanted, which was an easy way to make a large amount, using the loose tea.

Nearly all the bad reviews are from people who didn't read the description carefully enough and thought they were getting a glass pitcher. "AcraGlass" is a trade name for clear acrylic. Yes, the name is misleading, but when the description says "more durable than glass" and "BPA-free", a careful reader can infer it's a type of plastic.

I love that the mesh on the infuser is very fine. Even when brewing red tea, which is very small, only a small amount of the finest dust makes it through. The lid seals tight, or opens for pouring with 1/4 turn, so it's easy to keep your tea fresh. And it's narrow enough to fit easily in a fridge door.

The bottom of the infuser is solid plastic, which allows you to press down with a spoon to extract the liquid from your tea leaves without worries about damaging the mesh. But I will say the mesh is so fine and delicate that I do worry about how it will hold up over time. The solid bottom also makes it slightly harder to rinse out, because you can't run water straight through the bottom. But that's a minor quibble.

I've had mine about a month, and so far I've just rinsed it well and let it air dry. No problems with scratching or clouding... yet.

Now that I have this pitcher, I'm able to easily enjoy iced versions of the same loose teas that I like to drink hot during the winter.
