If you're an iced tea drinker, you're probably expecting to chug the stuff from now until Labor Day — and we don't expect the price to drop lower than this until then.

Sure, you can brew your tea the good, old-fashioned way with just a pitcher, tea bags and boiling water, but this doodad speeds up the process significantly — and when you're thirsty on a hot summer, that's very important. Thanks to the Patented Flash Chill Technology, you can get a tall cool glass of sweet tea in just ten minutes. All you do is place the tea in the brew basket, pour boiling water over it and let it steep to the strength you need it to be. Then, remove the brew basket, add ice, close the lid, shake it for about 30 seconds and your tea ice-cold. If you're no novice to iced tea making, you know that traditional methods take a lot longer. If you have time on your hands, you can also skip the boiling part and pour in cold water and let it steep for four hours in the fridge for a cold brew.

To keep the pitcher from exploding while you shake the heat out of it, the lid twists closed in two spots — that makes it leak-proof. That means you can take it with you on picnics without it spilling. But if you're keeping it at home, it fits nicely in the door of your fridge.

On top of that, you can use whatever tea you want — that means you can use your fancy loose-leaf tea!

More than 5,000 shoppers are already enjoying a refreshing summer beverage.

"This was my favorite purchase this year," a rave reviewer wrote. "I went and had a formal tea with my wife on a date at a local tea room inside a B&B. I ordered iced tea. The owner of the tea room used this iced tea maker and it made iced tea in 5 -7 minutes instead of waiting for the tea to steep and then cool. The tea room did also sell these but I was not going to pay their price so I went home and found it on Amazon at a much better price and I had it 2 days later. I make iced tea 2 times a week."

"The product works even better than I thought it would," another five-star fan shared. "I use loose-leaf teas and the mesh does a great job keeping everything in. Would recommend for anyone who frequently drinks iced tea."

"My tea tastes better than ever!" gushed a happy sipper. "The tea tastes so clean and crisp after sitting overnight in the fridge. It couldn't be more convenient and affordable."

Some shoppers had suggestions for the container.

"Nearly perfect," wrote a shopper. "My only suggestion, if the tea strainer base could screw off to make it easier to empty out and clean the basket, but this is a minor issue."

Another shopper shared: "There are no measurements on the container. I've taken to filling it ahead of time and using a Sharpie to mark pertinent marks since you're only supposed to do that. I understand that this makes it aesthetically pleasing but this bothers me so much because I like to measure my teas exactly to make sure it's the right strength."

This gizmo turns hot brown water into icy goodness in just a few minutes.
