Shop the Best Iced Teas

America’s love affair with iced tea dates back to the 1904 World’s Fair in St. Louis, when an enterprising English tea merchant named Richard Blechynden was put in charge of distributing hot tea samples to the public. When unseasonably warm temperatures drove the crowds away, Blechynden decided to "ice" his tea by running it through chilled lead pipes. Needless to say, the cold brew proved a hit. Today, over 80 percent of the tea consumed in the U.S. is served iced. With more options than ever before, it can be hard to separate the top iced teas from the rest of the bottled bunch. GAYOT has assembled the ten best bottled iced teas, from unsweetened Javanese to organic white, for quenching your summertime thirst.
