Tea Over Ice Pitcher Set: A Step-by-Step Guide

Min Read | July 12, 2018

The sculptural, stackable Tea Over Ice® Pitcher Set combines form and function to elevate the experience of brewing iced tea. Each set includes a sampler box of five iced tea infusers (Ceylon Gold, Blood Orange, Mango Peach, Ginger Pear and Raspberry Nectar), each blend perfectly crafted to maintain its flavor once chilled. To make the most of your set and learn the art of making iced tea in a flash, follow these simple steps, raise a glass, and enjoy.

Step 1: Fill the larger pitcher (the “chill” pitcher) with ice, stopping about an inch below the top to allow the second, smaller pitcher enough space to nest on top.

Step 2: Place the smaller pitcher (the “steep” pitcher) on top, letting it rest squarely above the larger, ice-filled pitcher below.

Step 3: In a separate pot or kettle, heat up to 24 ounces of filtered water to its optimal temperature, depending on the variety of tea you’re preparing (208 degrees Fahrenheit for a black tea or herbal tisane; 175 degrees for a green or white tea).

Step 4: Insert your pyramid tea infuser of choice into the steep pitcher, and then pour your hot water over it.

Step 5: Place the heat-resistant glass lid on top and let the tea steep (2-3 minutes for green or white tea; 5 minutes for black or herbal) as you watch the water swirl with flavor.

Step 6: Remove the infuser, pour the tea from the steep pitcher into the chill pitcher, give it a stir to redistribute the ice, and let it settle until the tea is ice-cold.

Step 7: Once chilled, serve the tea (in which much of the ice has now melted) into ice-filled highball glasses.

Step 8: Last but not least, share and enjoy.
