I found an 2f that is just beautiful and thought I would put my system here, if anyone is interested.
I have 1 1/2qt ball jars, these are about 2.5 cups. My 1 gallon brew does 4 jars. I leave starter for the next batch from the spigot down.
Pour each glass to the fill line
I take 2tbsp of loose leaf Teavana tea into each jar, I love the youngberry & orange peel mix.
1/2tbs of Teavana rock sugar (adjust to taste)
Cap tight, place in the fridge for 2+ days.
The tea will mostly settle at the bottom. But if you want you can pour it from this jar to you glass and use a strainer to grab any loose leaf tea.
