Better than my manual drip coffee maker
My best friend got one of these before me and I was in awe.
It was better than the manual drip coffee maker
she gave me last year.
I've had mine for some years now and it is fantastic! Instant iced-tea?
This is my dream! I make traditional sweet tea, but please don't think you are limited to the traditional.
When I made Middle Eastern food, I used this to make mint tea for my guests. I often mix herbal and black teas to keep my people guessing.
I didn't like the results I got when I used loose tea, even with a coffee filter. Bagged teas work just fine.
I've found that doubling the required amount of tea and brewing with the nozzle almost fully closed work best.
You can supposedly put the sweetener in the compartment with the tea bags. I prefer to sweeten after the tea has brewed.
Clean up is easy, I throw the appropriate parts in the dishwasher with some Dawn Plastic Booster to remove any staining.
My only complaint is that I wish this came in black, so I could leave it on the counter.
