Capresso Ice Tea Maker Review

“Custom brew a refreshing pitcher of iced tea at the touch of a button with the Capresso Iced Tea Maker. Iced tea can be served and stored in the beautiful glass pitcher.

Features and Benefits

  • 80 oz. (2.5 qt.) glass pitcher with removable lid and an easy-pour spout
  • Flavor enhancer adjusts brew strength from mild to strong taste
  • Removable permanent filter for loose tea or tea bags
  • Dishwasher-safe glass pitcher, permanent filter and removable filter basket
  • Removable water tank for easy filling and cleaning
  • Automatic shut off
  • Fresh or frozen fruit can be added to the pitcher for delicious gourmet beverages
  • Pitcher comes with a handy lid for easy storage directly in the refrigerator
  • Can also be used to prepare iced coffee
  • Full-color recipe booklet with 18 refreshing iced tea recipes

How Things Work

Add your favorite loose tea or tea bags to the reusable filter. Removable water tank can be filled directly at the sink for convenience. Fill the glass pitcher with ice to the ice level marking on the pitcher prior to brewing. You can also add fresh or frozen fruit before or after brewing for a refreshing tea blend. Adjust the brew strength with the slide on the front of the machine, for stronger tasting tea slide lever to the right. Serve iced tea directly from the pitcher that can also be stored in the refrigerator after brewing. A recipe book with 18 delicious recipes is included, with more recipes on the Capresso blog (www.capressoblog.com).

The Capresso Iced Tea Maker is also perfect for iced coffee beverages, however it is recommended to use a separate filter for coffee so there is no flavor transfer. Additional filters and pitchers are available for purchase.

Now that it has FINALLY gotten warmer outside, my family is in the mood for ice tea. We go through a ton, and now with the Capresso Ice Tea system I can make my family fresh and affordable iced tea every day.

The ice tea maker comes with a perfect little recipe booklet. It guides you to make simple and more exciting varieties of iced tea. The machine is so versatile that you will instantly start thinking of all the fun combo you can try! I love the stop drip feature. I can pull the pitcher away, pour a glass, then place it back the brew drip will continue, just like a coffee maker would do.

Here are a few of my favorites recipes:

Raspberry Peppermint Iced Tea

  • 1 cup frozen raspberries
  • 1/4 cup of sugar
  • 6 peppermint tea bags

Add raspberries to the pitcher plus sweetener if desired. Fill the pitcher with ice up to the ice level marker. Place pitcher in machine. Please tea bags in the brew basket and close lid. Turn on machine and let brew. After brewing, pour tea into ice-filled glasses. Enjoy!

Pear Sweetened Iced Tea

  • 1 can of sliced pears in juice
  • 2 family size Lipton tea bags
  • Sweetener

Add sliced pears, juices from can, and sweetener to pitcher. Fill pitcher with ice up to the ice level marker. Place pitcher in machine. Place tea bags into the brew basket and close lid. Turn on machine and let brew. After brewing, pour tea into ice-filled glasses.

    Sounds so easy to make and quick. I love tea during the summer months and this would be ideal. My daughter loves iced coffee but I would have to tell her not to make iced coffee with this because I think coffee leaves an after taste in cups and in machines.

    It’s really cool that this ice tea maker comes with a recipe book. I know there’s different ways to make tea with raspberries, strawberries, etc. but this might give me ideas I hadn’t heard of or thought of.
