    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.

          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.

            Absolutely a gem! I will buy another one

                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.

                      By Roxyrocks

                      from League City, TX

                      I drink a glass of tea in the morning before my work out and before I got this I was making a tea every night. When I went to Teavana the sales rep recommended I use this one since I like my tea cold. I love it! On Sunday nights I make tea for the week. When you fill it up it makes about 5 coffee mugs worth. I will heat up the tea then put in the filter into the teapot. After it is done brewing I stick the pitcher in the fridge to cool down. Then once it is cold I put the filter in with the tea and leave it there all week. It does come out a bit when pouring but I have found if you just pour slower it will not happen.

                            I bought the pitcher on the recommendation of a sales associate (although I was planning to purchase the PerfecTea Maker II). The lid does leak which is annoying but not something that can't be worked around. My main issue with it is that the filter isn't longer. I tried to make about half a pitcher (32oz) and not all the tea was covered by the water so I ended up having to make a full pitcher instead. I like that it is all dishwasher safe.

                            I am a big sweet drinker, and I love it cold. I enjoy hot tea during the cold months but my interest wanes when it gets warmer so I've been looking for a way I could brew a good quantity of iced loose tea at one time and was recommended to this in a teavana store.

                            Yes if you pour too fast the lid does leak and gets tea everywhere (only reason I can't give it 5 stars), go a little slower and it's just fine.

                            It's very easy to clean and provides enough space in the infuser to put the perfect amount of tea in. Works great, really glad I purchased this :) Now if they could just make a gallon-sized one I would be set.

                                I like it. It's true that if you pour too fast, it does spill, but you need to pour slowly. It's nice not to have to use a pot or tea kettle, then wait until it cools to pour it into a pitcher. I use both loose and bagged tea in it.

                                  I took a long time deciding on which tea maker w/infuser I was going to buy. I looked each one that Teavana offers and read the reviews posted by other consumers. I decided to visit the nearest store, which I'm glad I did because a very helpful salesperson showed me each tea maker they had on display and made comments on each one. I even commented on the negative reviews this particular one received. In fact, the one on display did show that the lid did not lay flat when closed. However, he pulled a new one right out of the box and I saw that the lid did in fact lay flat and closed. What I did notice and perhaps others have not is that the metal lid should fit snug at the pouring spout. I have been using this item for over a week now and I have had no problems with leakage or spillage and I have filled it to its capacity of 66 ounces. While it does not keep the tea hot for a long period of time, once I brew a full 66 ounces I transfer the tea to a thermal glass lined carafe and I have tea for the entire day.
