Iced tea brew basket instructions

Place a coffee filter inside the IPOT iced tea brewing basket, and puncture filter at bottom on the raised metal insert.

Empty one preportioned iced tea packet into filter and shake to evenly spread the leaves. For Iced Green only, cover tea leaves with a thin layer of ice cubes to reduce the water brewing temperature.

Slide brew funnel into the coffee machine, and place a pitcher or large storage container under the spout. Run ½ gallon cycle; leave funnel in place until tea is no longer dripping.

Let concentrate cool slightly, then dilute with ½ gallon cold water to yield 1 gallon total. Serve over ice.
