    I really like this. I went searching first for an infuser that wouldn't let particles through, and a friend recommended this pitcher that she'd bought in the store. I bought it because the infuser had a huge capacity for the whole leaves to unfurl, and because it came with a great glass pitcher. I use it at work and get comments on it all the time. The holes in the infuser are so tiny that almost no particles escape.

    Reviewers below are correct, the lid doesn't "latch" and it can leak when pouring. The metal lid does "clip" into two lips in the silicone spout. I found quickly that when it's clipped like this, tea will come out the sides around the spout, as the tea comes up and over the hole in the lid. I found that if you simply don't clip the lid, that spillage stops as the tea can now pour through the middle. It doesn't affect the look of the pitcher at all; the lid is now sitting on top of the little silicone lips instead of being clipped underneath them.

    My glass is still whole. If it were ever to break, I'd certainly keep the infuser and just stand it into a large Pyrex measuring cup.

    If anyone's interested, here's my recipe for a pitcher's worth of iced tea:
    1 tbsp Iron Goddess oolong whole leaf tea
    1/6 stick of cinnamon
    2 whole allspice
    2 whole cloves
    1 small piece of a crushed star anise (about 1/4 inch long)
    1 tsp dried organic valencia orange peel (pith scraped off before drying)
    1/2 tsp stevia powder
    Steep at least 6 hours, then cool.

    I used the product to make iced tea. I let the tea steep over night and the next morning would have perfect iced tea.

    HOWEVER, one day a piece of glass on the bottom popped out of the middle. The glass is in tact except for a quarter sized piece of glass missing from the bottom.

    How does this happen? I have no idea.

    I loved the pitcher until this happened.

    HOLE IN THE BOTTOM

      • Hole In The Bottom

      Best Uses

      • Anytime

      Just like some other users, mine also ended up getting a small hole in the bottom. i just brought it back to one of their stores and got a new one. It is so much easier to deal with the stores than calling. They keep you on hold for 20-30 minutes and when you do the call back thing, they never call you back. I say never, because I tried it three separate times after being on hold for so long. Love their products and the inshore people are very helpful......a lot to be desired with phone customer service.

      Perfect for cold brewing....

      • Anytime

      For the amount of use I plan to get out of the Tristan (I plan to use it A LOT), the price is fair. The Tristan will be my main man for cold-brewing my tea.

      My only complaint is the bottom of the infuser basket, which is solid, rather than mesh which potentially leaves flavor trapped in the infuser instead of getting out into the pitcher where it's supposed to be.

      Disappointing

      By Cat

      from LA, California

      About Me Health Conscious, Health Nut, High-End Shopper, Tea Enthusiast

      Pros

        Cons

        • Broke Without Being Hit
        • Weak Handle
        • Weak Lid
        • Weak Structure

        Best Uses

          I purchased this product because it was aesthetically pleasing as well as functional. I had the product for roughly six months, I was pouring tea one day and noticed a crack in the base of the handle and it was leaking. I was very sad about this as it was my favorite tea pitcher. I figured a reputable company like Tevana would have a warranty for products such as this as they bear the company name. To my dismay not only did the customer service representative inform me that there was no warranty for their products but that there was nothing that could be done for me. With as much as Tevana expects us to spend on their teas and products you would think that they would take better care of their customers. Never again will I purchase from this company.

          Not functional

          Pros

          Cons

          • Can't Make One Cup
          • Difficult to clean
          • Inconvenient To Use
          • Poorly Design Lip

          Best Uses

            This was a disappointment. It is very difficult to wash. The removable silicone stopper that is supposed to keep out leaves is incredibly poorly designed and difficult to put on/take off. It also does a poor job of keeping leaves out of the tea. Not happy with this purchase, wouldn't recommend to anyone who wants to use it daily.

                  I bought 2 of these, one as a present. Manufacturer's defect, thin area on bottom of pitcher. Used less than 5 times when a piece of the bottom the size of a quarter popped out. Complete waste of money. No warranty even though I had bought it less than a year. Company had a 90 day return policy but it had broken after that. Very unhappy customer. DO NOT BUY!

                        Product worked great while it lasted. Used it for less than a month (according to Teavana sales person instruction) when the bottom broke. Total waste of money.

                              This is absolutely an answer to prayer. I love ice tea in the summer, and my doctor has me drinking oolong tea. I hate the process of boiling the water, steeping, and then waiting for it to chill. With this, I put my tea leaves in the strainer, add water, and leave in the refrigerator while it not only steeps but chills at the same time. Yes, it does take a few hours, but I am making the most of the tea leaves that usually get thrown out because they sit around too long before I make the next pitcher of tea. Will definitely buy another one.

                                    There should be a closed column to use with ice after brewing and there should be a separate storage top which seals the brew from refrigerator odors and vice versa. This top could also reduce the vertical size of the pitcher which, with the vertical protrusion of the spout, is too tall for my refrigerator's top shelf. All in all a near miss design wise.
