We have tea - you have questions! We love our customers and their questions. So, we have paid close attention and included those and the answers in each our product page frequently-asked-questions section. Can you brew iced tea with a coffee maker? Absolutely- and many restaurants and home cooks prepare it that way exclusively. Check out our "Pour Over" iced tea method at the Iced Tea link below. Does water need to be boiling for tea? Yes and No. It at least needs to come to a boil. That's why making "sun tea" is really a bad idea. It might be hot in your backyard, but it's not THAT hot. Check out the Hot Tea link below for specifics and printable instructions on brewing green tea vs. black and herbal teas. Got more questions? Email us, we'll be happy to help.
