The Mr. Coffee market a machine to make tea the way the coffeepot works but the catching vessel is a tall pitcher. I don't think it sits on a warming plate as it is for making iced tea.

As so many have said, "cook with love" enjoy what you're doing. Do clean up as you go along. Makes it that much easier. Experiment....Have been married over 58 years and I still experiment with cooking and baking.

Thank you. I have never heard of this.

Yep, doesn't get any easier in my book. Boiling HARD.

My aunt has one (don't know that it is a Mr. Coffee). She uses it when she has company. She drinks tea, but her dh doesn't. The water is put in like making coffee in a drip maker, the sugar and ice is put in the pitcher then placed under the maker. The tea then comes in and the tea process is complete - ready to drink. I think it is called the Iced tea machine.

Ahhhh, so it doesn't need to be made as 'drinking' tea, but for drinking cold? Maybe using leaf tea and boiling water is unncessary for iced tea?

Especially in the Southern United States, when many people say tea, they mean iced tea. In the last few years it has become much more popular to drink tea hot than in the past. I drink both, but mostly iced in the summer. It does reach very high temps (90's are common) so iced is very refreshing.

OOOOOOOOOOOH! See, another cultural difference. I knew that if I went to the South I should be asking for sweet tea, but didn't realize that HOT tea was not done there. I would be in BIG trouble.

It isn't so much that it isn't done, but iced tea is more often than not more popular. There has been a bit of a resurgence in the last few years to drinking it hot. Just remember to ask for hot if that is what you want here.
