There’s nothing quite like a refreshing glass of iced tea on a hot and humid day. But making a great iced tea can sometimes feel a bit intimidating, except if you have the assistance of a good iced tea maker.

Iced tea makers can brew tea bags or loose leaf tea, providing tea that is flavorful and chilled and in a pitcher ready for serving or storage.

Whether your preference is a basic and streamlined pitcher with a tea infuser or a more tech-centric electric brewing option, you’ll have some great iced tea, and quickly.

When looking for a new iced tea maker for your home, some things to consider will include whether it is automatic or manual, and if you can set a timer. A timer is excellent for having tea waiting for you when you want it, whether or not you have the time to set it up and make it. You’ll also want to consider if the iced tea maker is the right size and shape for your space, and is easy to clean, as well as (of course!) if it fits into your budget.

  

1. Mr. Coffee Iced Tea Maker

This iced tea and iced coffee maker has a two-quart pitcher capacity and can brew tea bags or loose tea. Other features include a removable brew basket, and the ability to control energy and power waste with auto shut-off after the cycle is complete. Affordable and works fast, which is all we can ask for from an iced tea maker.

3. Ovalware Cold Brew Maker and Tea Infuser

This tea infuser and brewer is extra fun because it can also make cold brew coffee. It’s always a powerful asset to have one appliance that can do several tasks and do them well. The large handle is also very helpful, as it makes it easy to grab and hold as you pour. Less chance of mess and fuss!
