I was very disappointed when I received this only to learn that the tea steeps in a plastic capsule located inside of the stainless top. I also didn’t understand why there is no lid for the glass carafe if you want to store in the fridge. Not worth the money.
Anyone who is a true ice fan knows that seeing the iced tea in a glass container is part of the experience. And iced tea is best when it goes directly from hot onto the ice. I have a flash ice tea pitcher which is nice for bag teas. The Blomus allows me to use my loose teas. It is stylish enough to make for and serve to guests. Plus seeing the tea brew before your eyes adds to the flourish. Well worth the purchase.
