      This pitcher is perfect, along with its trend-forward accessories, making beverage preparation easy. The best part of this pitcher is that the pitcher, tea infuser, flavor infuser, lid, and top are all dishwasher safe. The Primula Flavor It Pitcher is perfect for all occasions. You can infuse fresh fruits, mint, lavender, and more into the water, lemonade, and teas. The large capacity flavor infuser creates delicious, personalized, and healthy drinks. The chill core is a permanently sealed tube that will keep your Flavor It Pitcher cold without diluting your favorite drink. You can even store the chill core in your freezer and that way it will always be available to use whenever you need it, keeping your drinks crisp and cold for hours on end. 

      How to Make Iced Tea Using the Primula Flavor It Pitcher

      This large capacity pitcher is easy to use and makes delicious drinks. First, insert the flavor infuser into the pitcher and place your desired ingredients into the infuser. Fill the pitcher with water, and allow time to brew in the refrigerator. For infused fruit beverages, allow for at least four hours to brew in the refrigerator. Once brewed, serve and enjoy. Additional water can always be added right back into the Primula Flavor It Pitcher as it is being consumed. 

      You can also incorporate your favorite herbs, spices, fruits, veggies, loose leaf tea, or even tea bags into the Flavor It Pitcher. Making delicious drinks with the Flavor It Pitcher is the perfect way to swap out high sugar beverages for a healthier alternative. Included with the Flavor It Pitcher are recipes for Strawberry Lemon Water, Cucumber Melon, Raspberry Lime, White Peach Sangria, and more. 

      What Else Can be Added to Tea? 

      Sometimes regular tea just isn't cutting it and maybe you want something a bit more exciting and flavorful. We get it! Try adding some of these items from our list below to switch it up every once in a while. 

      • One thing we recommend it adding some kind of citrus into your tea. You can either squeeze it directly into your tea, let it brew in the Primula Flavor It Pitcher, or add a slice of lemon, orange, or grapefruit into your tea. This is a simple way to mix it up. 
      • Adding cinnamon is another great way to add flavor to your tea. Cinnamon can be perfect in hot tea for the colder months. We recommend putting cinnamon in teas that can mask the taste of herbal teas. 
      • We all know that honey is a great ingredient to add to tea. Honey and lemon work well together and would make a delicious combination to get rid of that herbal taste of tea. 
      • If you are feeling under the weather and need something to help clear your congestion, try adding ginger to your tea. Ginger is also known to help with nausea. To make ginger tea, start with fresh ginger root, slice it into thin pieces, boil water and ginger together and let boil for about 10 minutes, and add honey or lemon if you want additional flavors. 
      • If you are dairy free, adding dairy free milks such as almond, oat, soy, or cashew milk to tea is a great way to enjoy tea without the dairy.
