Product Description

The distinctive Biasca Iced Tea Jug by Bodum is named after a small town located in the south of Switzerland where it gets unusually warm during otherwise chilly summers. For locals, cold brewed green tea provides exactly the energy kick needed after hiking in the nearby mountains. To recreate this experience at home, place a desired amount of green tea leaves in the Biasca jug and fill it with cold water. Let it steep over night. Add ice cubes and sugar, as desired, the next day. The Biasca features a filter that is integrated into the lid designed to keep the green tea leaves in the jug when pouring tea. The Biasca can also be used to create refreshing infused water and other infused drinks. Additionally, the lid sits tightly on the jug’s opening to properly store beverages. The Biasca jug is made of heat-resistant, ultra-light borosilicate glass and does not get cloudy in the dishwasher, even after repeated use. The removable lid is made of plastic with a silicone gasket and an integrated, finely meshed plastic filter. The jug has a capacity of 1.2l (40-ounce) and measures 27 cm (10.6) high.

Had previously owned the Bodum Ceylon 51oz Iced Tea Pitcher, but the "infuser" was useless from the start and the lid broke after a few uses... so I was excited to see the Biasca Ice Tea Jug as an updated ice tea solution.

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!

It was beautiful but broke the first time I tried to use it. I think the only thing that I did was put it down on the counter top in my kitchen and I found a hole in the center of the bottom.

Oh well.

I own several sets of Bodum insulated glasses for many years, no problem, but this "infuser" broke with in the first 30 minutes of use. The entire bottom of the infuser broke off. The Biasca is as delicate (OK - more delicate) than fine china. Nice design but not built for realistic use.

On my second use of this pitcher, it broke! I was placing the top back on, after filling it up, and water started to run all over my counter. I don't know if too much pressure built up while pushing down the filter cap, or if it was cracked, but a small hole ruptured on the bottom of the pitcher. The glass on this product is way too fragile! Just be warned.

The glas of this iced tea maker is paperthin and hence very fragile. It broke after one month already. I was very disappointed, especially because Bodum did not exchange the iced tea maker.

This is a really nice ice tea pitcher, although I wish it were just a little bit shorter, and a little bit wider. But it's well made, and attractive, and does fit in the refridgerator door pockets as well. Overall very nice quality.
