A History of Iced Tea :

Traditional iced tea emerged in the United States and became popular at the end of the 19th century, particularly after it was introduced at the St. Louis World’s Fair in 1904. A refreshing drink to be enjoyed during summer months, the tea was usually served with lemon and sometimes with sugar.

The introduction of carbonated iced tea is more recent, following the consumer trend to seek healthier beverages. With the increasing popularity of flavoured sparkling water and artisanal sodas, both beverage manufacturers and tea lovers at home started to make carbonated versions of traditional iced tea, resulting in a drink that is both refreshing and festive.

Sparkling iced tea blends the timeless appeal of iced tea with the contemporary love of bubbly drinks. This combination results in a flavourful refreshment with a celebratory vibe that also meets the demand for healthier and less sweet drink options. There are many commercial versions of sparkling iced tea now available, and a large number of home recipes being shared, which allows consumers to develop their own effervescent creations based on black, green, white, or even herbal teas, with a variety of natural flavourings.
