If too many barbecues alla famiglia have left you feeling like a cat on a hot tin roof, consider cutting the Tennessee Williams-style tension at the next one with a mollifying glass of iced tea. This handy Takeya set from Teaopia comes with two pitchers and an interchangeable filter:
You can brew your tea in the smaller vessel, then pour it over a stack of ice in the taller one for an instant cold drink. Both pitchers are BPA-free, lightweight, leak-proof and dishwasher-safe, making cleanup duties in the crowded kitchen simpler. But surely you can all find something else to war about.
