If there’s one drink that’s synonymous with summer, it’s iced tea. There’s nothing quite like cooling off with a refreshing glass of sweet (or unsweetened) iced tea during the dog days of summer. However, anyone who’s ever made big batches of iced tea before knows that it can be a pain to make sure that there’s always enough on hand to last the entire day — especially during big summer get-togethers like picnics, barbecues, and family reunions. Luckily, there are a bunch of iced tea makers out there designed to take the stress out of keeping the tea on tap. Below, we rounded up eight of the most popular iced tea makers on the market today, from simple finds perfect for quick batches to smart machines that’ll keep all your brews (we’re talking iced coffee, too!) flowing all summer long.

This long-standing team favorite from Takeya is also my personal go-to — and it couldn’t be easier to use. To use, simply fill the included infuser with the tea of your choice, fill the container halfway with boiling water, let it steep for as long as needed per your tea choice, fill the remaining half with ice, shake it for one minute, and you’re set! Best of all, it fits perfectly in most fridges, taking up about as much space as a bottle of juice!
