Some girlfriends and I were shopping at the Marshalls store near Perimeter Mall in Atlanta last week when I spotted this 40-ounce Bodum Biasca Ice Tea Jug. I've been straining loose tea out of tea pitchers all summer long, so this was a must-buy item. I couldn't decide whether to get the one with the yellow lid or the one with the green lid, but then I noticed the green-lidded version was $19.99 while the yellow-lidded version was $16.99. I think $16.99 is a prettier color, don't you? I was feeling a wee bit guilty about buying another tea product except a) this will make my life easier by saving me time and b) I saw it sells for $32.29 on Amazon, list price $53.50. Score!
Love it! Not a speck of tea leaf comes out of the pitcher thanks to this fine-mesh strainer and rubber seal.
This tea pitcher is in fact made for cold-brewing tea in the refrigerator, just as I like to make it. If you do too, you may want to check out your local Marshalls!
