A little History with that Iced Tea
you know that next to water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the
world? In 2014, Americans consumed over 80 billion servings of tea, or
more than 3.60 billion gallons. Approximately 85 per cent of the tea
consumed in America is iced. Ready-to-Drink iced tea has spiked over the
last ten years with sales conservatively estimated to be more than $5.2
have the 1904 World’s Fair to thanks for the lift-off in popularity of
iced tea. That exceedingly hot summer meant fair goers were looking to
cool down and what better way than with a glass of iced tea. By the
First World War, Americans were buying tall glasses, which became
commonly known as iced-tea glasses, long spoons suitable for stirring
sugar into taller glasses and lemon forks. Prohibition, which ran from
1920 to 1933, helped boost the popularity of iced tea as Americans
looked at alternatives to drinking beer, wine and hard liquor, which
were made illegal during this period.
tea reared its head in the early nineteenth century when cold green tea
punches spiked with booze gained in popularity. Recipes began appearing
in English and American cookbooks. Generally referred to as punches,
the recipes called for green tea and not black tea.
most iced teas get their flavor from tea leaves, tisanes or herbal teas
are also sometimes served cold and referred to as iced tea. Iced tea is
sometimes made by a particularly long steeping of tea leaves at a lower
temperature (one hour in the sun versus five minutes at 80-100 °C).
Some people call this sun tea. In addition, sometimes it is also left to
stand overnight in the refrigerator.
