Fantastic, Beautiful but VERY fragile.
My wife and I actually love this set and while it is expensive it's exceptional with ONE *heartbreaking* exception: The glass it is made of is extremely fragile - we had this set for less than 2 weeks when it was slightly bumped against the larger pitcher when setting it down and the rim of the top pitcher suffered a large chip and then a corresponding crack in the side which made us have to throw away the top pitcher. Had the bump been at all forceful, I would just chalk it up to user error but it was VERY slight. I considered buying a replacement top pitcher (depending on what the cost would be) but I cannot find any way to do so - and as I say, repurchasing the set is an expensive proposition. When I say it was heartbreaking, I truly mean it as my wife was so sad about it as she truly loved it and I had purchased the set along with a number of the teas for her as a surprise gift.

The product is nice. Using the Tea Forte tea bags works the best to keep the "leaf" stiff out of the top of the tea pitcher. I like the concept, but the ice below starts to melt from the heat of the hot tea pot above it, therefore, you wind up with some dilution of the tea by the melted water. I know the ice eventually melts also . . . . but over time. Therefore, you may want to pour out the melted ice if you want to preserve the depth of the tea.

The Art of Iced Tea Making
We were introduced to this iced tea steeper while on vacation at a resort hotel. We ordered iced tea not knowing the whole presentation of the iced tea making process. Not only is the steeper itself interesting and aesthetically pleasing, the handmade tea bags are impressive.
I purchased the iced tea steeper a few weeks ago and love it!
I did try the the Ceylon black tea -- it is strong and has a very pleasant taste. I can't wait to try the other flavors in the tea sampler that came with it.
I also want to add that their customer service is excellent and they didn't hesitate to help me with a question I had.
This would be a nice gift that a tea lover would appreciate. For me, it is also a fond memory of a great weekend getaway!

I loved it and had to have one
A resort we go to every year served my iced tea with this ... I loved it and had to have one. I also fell in love with tea -- I am a coffee and tea snob and today only want this brand of tea. I recommend this for anyone who enjoys a really nice cup of hot tea or a glass of iced-tea or a special way of serving tea to a friend.

Perfect system. Delicious tea with only natural flavors.
The system works perfectly and all flavors are amazing. Better yet, only natural flavors are used. Not all premium brands can say that, Teavana....

Good product, but needs better packing material.
I love it, but the packaging is such that after handled by the post office, the top pitcher arrived with hairline cracks. I'm going too have to return it, but I've ordered another one. Hope it holds up better in transit. As previous reviewers have said, the glass is very thin.

I LOVE the idea and I make a pitcher every day
Definitely buy this, but the down side is that the glass is so thin. I am waiting to put ice in it and bust it one day. I also fear accidentally tapping it against something. There's no doubt in my mind that it won't be able to stand a minor knock. Other than fearing the glass, I LOVE the idea and I make a pitcher every day. The tea itself is delicious too!

We have used this at nice restaurants. Bought as a gift and the person absolutely loved it. Very thin and could easily break but absolutely beautiful

We love Tea Forte
We love Tea Forte! I was introduced to this a few years ago during "Tea Time" at our hotel in Mexico. The Pear is absolutely delicious!! It is a great treat for a Sunday afternoon on the patio! I would highly recommend this as a gift or a treat for yourself!
