First off - please note that this is a COLD BREW iced tea maker which requires 5-6 hours of cold steeping in the fridge. This also means that hot water should never be used. The idea behind a cold brew is to cut down the bitterness or astringency of regular brew iced tea, and also to enhance the more subtle flavors of whichever leaf you're using.
This process and jug produces a very soft, light and delicate iced tea. If you're looking for brisk - keep looking. Even adding heaps of extra tea does not go far in strengthening a cold brew.
Regarding the Biasca, I LOVE the design - my version had a bright green lid and looked fun and modern. The overall size of the jug is also appreciated as it has a small diameter and a comfortable, slim handle. Plus the lid is fantastic - a good rubber seal and a fine mesh that keeps all leaves in the jug and out of your mug. Wonderful!
I wish I could continue enjoying that wonderful design, however, on only my second use, I set a full jug back in the fridge and the bottom two inches of the jug broke off and sent glass and thousands of tiny tea leaves all over my fridge and kitchen floor.
Be warned - this item is extremely fragile! I did not bang or slam the jug against anything, not did I use hot water - and yet it still broke. I'm sure you'll have better luck than I if you understand this going in. Treat it with kid gloves and I'm sure it will be a great iced tea maker for you!Read more ›
