Recently I have had a few inquiries regarding the different types of ice tea.
There are basically four types of tea used for ice tea.
Most Ice teas are BLACK TEA --- UNLESS they state otherwise.
Black tea is “Fermented tea” and may contain teas from South America, China, Indonesia and / or Indian origins. This is based upon flavor profile, availability, and pricing.
The other teas are:
Oolong tea – “Partially Fermented tea” principally of Chinese and Taiwanese origins.
Green tea – “NON Fermented tea” principally of Japanese, Chinese and other origins.
Flavored Ice tea is based upon the true tea used in the formula, the flavoring oils, and the herbs in the formula
