I have a bit of an obsession with water pitchers. Since my transplant I have had to find fun ways to keep my fluid intake up, and also get the amount of water I need. I don't really drink sodas or coffee (unless it's iced) so I needed to find other ways to get my fluid intake. I really love to infuse my water with fruits and to make tea but I couldn't do these in the same pitcher, until now!
I fell in love with the Mami Wata Tea and Fruit Infusion Pitcher! This pitcher also comes with an ice ball maker, which is really useful and just downright adorable!!! You also get very clear directions, and an e-book full of recipes (which is great if you are new to fruit infusion or just would like to try different things)! I was really impressed with this pitcher because I have never seen one that actually makes Tea too! Now, you can't put boiling water in here, but you can put very warm water in and I didn't have a problem with the flavor because of the way the infusion pitcher works!!! I love buying tea that has different flowers in it, and it's very hard to seep without a cheesecloth but this pitcher is great for those teas. Some of those teas from places like Teavana are hard to seep because they have so many different flowers and herbs in them, but with this pitcher it's a breeze. The holes are so small that you can barely see them with the naked eye but trust me the flavor and water gets through.
One of my favorite features of this pitcher is the screw on part of the tea/fruit filter. I have other pitchers like this (this is the only one I've found that seeps tea) and that was always the hardest part for me to figure out or it sometimes fell off completely! I also was grateful this pitcher came with an e-book, which told me things about this pitcher I didn't know such as you can refill it up to 3 times, take the fruit out within a certain number of hours but the water is still okay to drink, and even to cut the rinds off the fruit too! I also didn't know that room temperature helps the water to infuse faster, or that you should really not drink the infused water after 3 days but that never seems to be a problem because I always drink it within a few hours!
What I like most about the e-book is there is recipes that I had not thought of before and I'm sure I could have found online by looking up "infused water recipes" but this book is printable and can be kept in a cabinet or recipe binder! It has some great recipes!
Here is a few I want to try or have tried:
Apple, Cinnamon, and Honey Water
Lemon, Cucumber, Mint Water
Pineapple, Cucumber, Mint Water
Watermelon and Basil Water (I really want to grow my own Basil and try this)
We are moving soon (YAY) and what I'm most excited for is having filtered water from our fridge, so I don't have to buy bottled water all the time! I also am grateful the e-book has different recipes for different things, like sugar control (which is good for someone like me with diabetes), hunger control, and I'm especially excited to try the anti-inflammatory combinations because of my diagnoses with fibromyalgia. I have vowed once moved to try to drink infused water everyday, and also drink herbal tea (especially green tea). I know if you try this pitcher you'll fall in love and use it daily too. It also comes with an added bonus of ice cube trays, which are adorable and make ice balls!
