I love my tea over ice pitcher set- it is the perfect size for making ice tea for two with a very nice presentation, or ice tea for one when you are thirsty on a hot day by the pool, or out on the deck reading a good book. When the herbal teas are fresh brewed like this and don't sit around getting bitter, you can enjoy them without adding any sweetener, so its also good for dieting. I have bought several for gifts for my tea drinking friends. Here in the south lots of people don't drink hot tea, but they do drink iced tea. The pitcher set comes with a few adventurous flavors in tea infusers, so it widens horizons. And you can use other teas with an infuser or a tea strainer if you have favorites - lots of options. Also the glass is pretty sturdy- it doesn't break easily. Though of course it can break if you drop it on a hard floor. Still it is a good quality glass, not like some of the cheap Mexico glass you see these days. Tea Forte- good company to do business with- they are always improving and adding new ideas and sales and offers.
