Other pitches for iced tea include metal pitchers or plastic pitchers, with different designs for different amounts of tea. The standard design will hold around twelve ounces of tea while other designs hold more or less. Since iced tea is often associated with spring and summer activities the designs are often plastic which you can see through so that you can watch the tea as it cools or as the tea leaves sink to the bottom.
There are iced tea pitchers designed for fresh tea leaves with small filters that you place on top which settle in the middle of the pitcher. You can pour the colder water over them and allow the tea leaves to mix into the water but remain inside of the cylinder. No matter what design or size you choose, the best iced teas pitcher is based on your personal preference.
