That ranks right up there with the iced tea maker in degree of useless.
I have to disagree. The less time I have to spend making something I don't like (I make it for Dark Boyfriend), the happier I am.
Actually, It takes less time and fewer steps to make it without the teamaker for me. As well as less mess and less counter space.
I have a pouch and water plus the machine. Pouch goes in, water goes in, and done. I don't have to stand around and watch things boil or stir things or any other such thing. Pouch goes in, water goes in, and I walk away. I like that.
Boil? Counter space?? To make ice tea, I fill a pitcher with water. Put in teabags, and put the pitcher in the fridge. Next morning, I have iced tea! There's nothing to boil, nothing to take up counter space.
Been doing it this way for YEARS.
