Luckily, the tea is fine without the added ice. I just have to let it cool off in the refrigerator a bit longer than usual. The two quart size is perfect for me since I am usually the only one who drinks it. I’ve made several different kinds of tea, including herbals like rooibos, but black always seems to come out the best. I usually use about five teaspoons of dry whole leaves. I love to add a bit of mint to make it even more refreshing. Overall, I’ve been very satisfied with it and I would definitely recommend this tea maker.
