I have been using a Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Pot for about six years. It is similar to a drip coffee maker.

I use two small Lipton Green Tea bags and one large Lipton regular tea bag. I go through about a pitcher a day.

Yeah, it is green tea. It is suppose to be good for us, but I just like the taste of this blend of the two kinds. The taste isn't too heavy or strong.

The Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Pot works just like a drip coffee maker. Once the water finishes dripping through the tea bags and filter it is ready. It uses a drip coffee filter.

Here it is. I have the TM1 model

Here's what you do:

Next time you're out driving around,
pull in the drive thru of that fast
food chik'n place that all the holsteins
seem to have such a problem with and
buy yourself a gallon of thier tea.
It's good.
Either that or get yourself a women that
likes iced tea. But the drive thru is cheaper.

We use a 4 cup measuring cup filled with about 3 cups tap water and 3 of the family size Luzzianne tea bags then heat in the microwave for 5 minutes.

Put 1.5 cups sugar in the pitcher and dump the tea in the pitcher. Then use a wooden spoon and mash the teabags to get what you can out of them. Stir it up real good and put 3 or 4 ice cubes in the pitcher. Let it sit a couple of minutes until the ice has melted then add water.

Had many a folks compliment me on my tea. thumb
