How Old is Ice Tea

Before I tell you about how to make Iced tea, let me brief you about Iced Tea. Ice tea, or Iced tea, commonly known as cold tea, originated from the United States in 1860. Initially, any tea which is served with ice was termed as cold tea. Later it became a novelty, and it is infused with fruits, herbs ( we have 30+ herbal drinks) and alcohol, to add vitamins and taste. It was a royal drink for the rich and famous people. Slowly and steadily, it spread across the globe. This section involves fruits and alcohol, so let’s know the different infused iced tea.
