When it comes to tea, its aroma and the sense of ecstasy to feel when you drink it. Is something which cannot be described in words for me. I always wants to drink tea no matter what time of day it is. The reason for it simply that firstly it is healthy to drink and secondly, it completely enlightens your mood. But, what I have observed these days is that people are so busy in today’s fast and modern life that they want to drink tea, but irony is that they don’t have the time to prepare it like we used to prepare it.
This made me felt that due to this fast running life, the joy of drinking that refreshing tea shouldn’t get vanished from our lives. So, the solution lies to the modern world only. The tea makers are proving to be a boon for all the tea lovers who want to drink tea. And that too instantly without standing in the kitchen the whole time. Say, thanks to Tea Makers! 🙂 I’m sure you’ll love these tea makers that will not only rejoice your love for tea but also make you love tea like never before.
So, here are the best Tea Maker Machines you must have in your kitchen!
First comes First!
Top 5 ICE TEA MAKER that will give you the perfect taste for those perfect moments with your loved ones.
#5. Mr. Coffee 2-Quart Iced Tea Maker, Blue
If making deliciously refreshing great tasting Iced Tea in minutes is what you are looking for. Then believe me you can brew Iced Tea the easy way with this maker. All you’ll have to do is to simply place Water in the Reservoir, place your favorite tea (loose or bags) in the brew basket and finally ice in the pitcher. You’ll be sipping your fresh iced tea in minutes.
It comes in many variety of colors like red, orange, blue and etc. My favorite combination of bags that worked unbelievably well with this maker are Celestial Seasons Red Zinger, one Lipton Mango, and two Red Rose decaf’s which I have tried with this machine. The added advantage over the other revised model is that you get a quart more of tea per cycle. If you’ll pour the water directly into the unit, where there is a window on the front with markings for 1, 2 and 3 quarts. The container has markings for how much ice to use for 1, 2 and 3 quarts. This is a better design than the usual tea makers. IMHO. This is a big advantage over the old style. The new one comes with 2 pitchers. You can turn them both upside-down over the base unit to save even more storage space.
- 2 qtr. pitcher capacity
- Can brew tea bags or loose tea
- Removable brew basket
- Brews loose and bagged tea with a 2-quart capacity
- Makes great tasting iced tea in minutes
- On/Off Indicator light and fast brew cycle
- Removable steeping basket for easy cleaning
- The best part it has 1-year limited warranty
- The pitchers are shorter and are less-than-ergonomic handle.
In my opinion, this is a great, convenient way to make iced tea and with a less than $20 price tag, it’s a great value as well. Take care of it. Read the directions. I plan to be using mine for the next several summers to come. 🙂
#4. Takeya Flash Chill® Iced Tea Maker (2 Quarts, Blueberry)
This design simply combines the tea infuser design with Takeya’s patented Flash Chill Technology. Resulting in making delicious iced tea is fast and that too easy. This 2 Qt Flash Chill Iced Tea Maker makes 8 glasses of iced tea. Thus making it a perfect choice for those who wants to sip their favorite tea at all moments with their family. It works amazing with both loose and packed tea and soon you’ll realize why it is called the Flash Chill and that the longer brew cup has extra bonus uses. Unlike the other models where the brewing area is only about 1/3 of the way into the pot, this one goes almost to the bottom. It is intended for brewing a double strong half pot and then filling the rest of the maker with ice so as help in chilling very fast, hence the “Flash Chill’ name is given to it.
It works great for it’s intended purpose and brews great tea that can be chilled very quickly and consumed right away without waiting. One peculiar thing I discovered is that the longer brew cup is great for teas that expanded greatly. We have a couple of loose leaf teas that triple or quadruple in size and this handles them with room to spare. Well, frankly saying I am not a tea expert, but believe me this tea maker lets the tea expand and seep much better then if the tea was constricted like it would be in a smaller tea maker. You can also use this large brew cup to add fresh fruit to teas after brewing, or lemonades, etc. without the seeds or pulp getting in the beverage. This additional use as an infuser is a great bonus to overall.
- Makes 8 servings of iced tea (2 Quarts) which gives lots of options
- Handles boiling water right from electric kettle
- Water tight seal so it can be stored on its side
- Flash Chill preparation option gives you fresh time without the wait
- It’s easy to use and clean
- BPA-Free Tritan
- May be too big to stand up in all fridges, but can be laid on its side
Well, I love this thing. As no matter what I or you say. It meet all of the “must have’s” and passed beautifully. 😛
#3. Hamilton Beach 40911 2-Quart Electric Iced Tea Maker, White
This iced tea maker machine is known for its perfect iced tea and chill instantly with this electric easy to use. It was specially designed keeping in mind the fact that “Coffee drinkers have their automatic brewers, then why shouldn’t tea drinkers?”. It’s an ideal for family gatherings or summer picnics. As this ingenious Hamilton Beach machine brews up a pitcher full of iced tea in less than ten minutes. After the pitcher is filled with ice cubes, tea (either loose or bags) is placed in the special paperless filter after which an adjustment for mild, medium, or strong brewing is selected as per your taste and mood.
The lid snaps on and a receptacle slides out from underneath the heating unit which then holds the pitcher snugly in place. During this process water is added to the heating unit, the power button is pushed, and the hot water drips through the tea filter into the pitcher of ice all by on its own. Finally when brewing is complete, the power automatically shuts off for safety. Though it’s very easy to use by if you may need its complete directions for use are embossed on the slide-out receptacle, which eliminates worries about losing a user guide. Although the iced tea maker looks bulky when assembled, the pitcher inverts snugly over the heating unit for compact storage. Able to fit in most refrigerator doors, the 2-quart pitcher features a hollow, comfortable handle and a thumb release for the lid, but is not dishwasher-safe.
- It is very easy to keep clean.
- It’s small enough to fit easily in the fridge with all the other beverages.
- My favorite feature so far with this model is that I can use loose tea in the brew basket without using a coffee filter. There is a built-in mesh filter in the brew basket. I prefer loose tea (the quality tends to be better than the tea you find in bags) and this just simplifies the brewing process for me.
- Indicator light and automatic shutoff
- Adjustable brew-strength selector
- Product Built to North American Electrical Standards.
Not much colors are available to its design.
All in all, I am very happy with this product for all the tea lovers out there & therefore would recommend the Hamilton Beach Electric Iced Tea Maker to every tea lover.
#2. Mr. Coffee Tea Cafe Iced Tea Maker, Black, BVMC-TM33
The most catchy quality of Mr. Coffee Tea Cafe machine is that it brews gourmet iced tea in one simple touch. Simply add water to the reservoir, loose tea or tea bags to the brew basket, ice to the pitcher and just press brew. It’ll automatically brew up to 2.5 quarts of iced tea for the perfect pick-me-up and for all occasions. The Mr. Coffee Tea Cafe comes with a big 2.5 quart dishwasher safe glass pitcher, adjustable brew strength, dishwasher safe brew basket, dishwasher safe permanent filter and some of most amazing 20 recipes you may try in your kitchen. It Brew from simple spiced iced tea to Antioxidant Pomegranate-Blueberry Sparkler tea to even Tea Sangria or your own custom brew. Save up to 350 a year versus the coffeehouse.
It works great with both bagged and loose tea and brews the amazing taste almost every time. It has a great fine filter that can accommodate loose tea and if you do like a fine ground tea. Also, something you can not see from the picture, on the right hand side of the pot, there is a transparent window to allow you to see how high to fill the brewer with water. This is another awesome bonus especially if you have a filter on your tap and can just use your sprayer from the tap to fill – which is what I do. You’ll truly enjoy the brew from this pot.

Would I still recommend this pot? Honestly, even with the carafe issue? Yes. The brew quality is totally worth it to me.
#1. Mr. Coffee TM70TS Fresh Iced Tea Maker, 3-Quart, Teal Splash
The reason this tea maker makes upto the #1 count in the list is because it’s crème de la crème in terms of value for money. It instantly infuse flavors in minutes & make refreshing iced tea at home. It just brews your favorite tea with added fresh fruits and even with any other special ingredients to create your own customized blend. Its dishwasher safe 3-Quart pitcher that brews tea bags or tea leaves, has an adjustable brew strength feature, which even includes automatic shut-off feature and is pretty awesome for iced coffee too.
I was AMAZED when I came read the reviews for this Iced Tea Maker. Literally, stunned. This unit is without question one of the finer kitchen equipment purchases one can ever made. It should be right up there with the Foreman Grill. This unit makes perfect Iced Tea every time, in a matter of 9 mins (I’ve timed it for the 3 Quarts). The best thing about this unit is that you can make tea from tea bags, or from Loose Tea. If you’re using Loose Tea, you need to use a coffee filter. If you’ll buy bulk loose tea, both green teas and herbal teas, then believe me you’ll find this unit makes them to out absolute perfection, again, inside of 9 minutes.
Once you’ll have this you may completely stop buying any kind of bottled drinks, because you can make your own, that too for your own needs. Anytime! You’ll absolutely love-making Green Tea and using Wild Organic Honey to sweeten with this.
- Brews Tea Bags or Tea Leaves
- 3-Quart dishwasher safe pitcher
- Automatic Shut-Off
- Adjustable Brew Strength
- Recipes included
Believe me, I tried to find but horribly failed in my attempt.
So, I’ll HIGHLY recommend this unit to anyone who makes a lot of tea. If the price of this unit went up to $50 all of a sudden, I’d still buy it without thinking. 😀
