Gifts for her & him ~ TAKEYA - Designs that enrich your life

Country Mouse, City Mouse

Welcome to Day 13 of my Holiday Gift Guide!
Attention all tea drinkers...today it is all about you!!

What can beat a warm cup of tea at the end of the day? How about some ginger cookies to accompany that tea? A soothing cup of tea is definitely one of my favourite things. And, then in the summer...you guessed it, my go-to refreshing drink is iced tea. I can recall as a young girl drinking iced tea at my Great Aunt's with my Grandma. But, for some reason, as an adult I have never gotten into making my own iced tea at home. Until now, that is!

Takeya USA is committed to bringing Takeya’s manufacturing expertise to the North American market by enriching people’s lives using modern design, a rich palette of colors, food-safe materials, unique functionality and high quality craftsmanship. We provide real solutions that save the consumer money, are eco-friendly and promote a healthy lifestyle.

Throughout our entire product line, you will find Japanese-inspired designs and innovative features, such as our twist top airtight pouring lids and our crystal clear BPA Free Acraglass™.

Beautifully function is how I would describe the Flash Chill Iced Tea Maker which I received from TAKEYA USA. Not to mention very easy to use, clean, and store.

The Flash Chill Iced Tea Maker comes with two ready to use components...the tea maker and the chilling pitcher.

The Tea Maker can be used for quickly making a cup or two of tea, or use it in conjunction with the pitcher to make a tall glass of iced tea. To make tea, you can use either loose leaf or bagged tea, just place your tea into the infuser and then fill with your hot or boiling water. To steep and to get full flavoured tea, just rotate a bit while waiting for your tea. (only a couple of minutes wait)

To make your tea iced, simply pour your steeped tea out of the tea maker into the chilling pitcher which is three quarters full of ice. We slightly sweetened ours with sugar, but, you could also throw in cut up lemon, or lime. (Or, whatever kind of fruit you love).

A few minutes later we were sipping fresh, tasty iced tea. A drink which we knew had no artificial ingredients and was an all natural iced tea!

Served straight from this modern looking pitcher, which goes easily from the table, to storing inside your fridge. The pitcher fits nicely in the door of our fridge, making it ultra convenient to store.

The pitchers are dishwasher safe, but, I hand wash to keep them looking as good as they did when we first got them. This is a fantastic system! I am very impressed with the quality and I love the tall chilling pitcher for it's appeasing visuals. And, knowing I am being eco-friendly by using my TAKEYA product makes it all that much better.

Visit TAKEYA for purchasing this Flash Chill Iced Tea Maker and much more! I so love their Swirl Tumblers, not to mention their Airtight Food Jugs would be great for my bulk purchases.

Thank you TAKEYA USA for joining me for my Holiday Gift Guide. I'm so pleased to learn about your incredible products and your quality.

Shop TAKEYA this holiday season for tea making accessories, drink makers and solution specific containers. TAKEYA would make the perfect gift for a person who appreciates the good things in life!

I have never tried iced tea before. Can you believe it? That looks like a really nice maker/pitcher combo.
