Iced tea appeared in Russia in the middle of the 19th century. It was traditionally served in the street in summer, topped with ice cubes. However, it was not until 1877 that the first recipe for iced tea appeared in Estelle Woods Wilcox’s cookbook, the Buckeye Cookbook. Remained confidential for a long time, the recipe became popular in the early 1900s thanks to Richard Blechynden, owner of a tea plantation who decided because of the hot weather to add ice cubes to taste his tea during the Universal Exhibition of 1904 in the United States. Following this event, the drink became popular in the country and then became essential with the rise of flavored teas.
Today, more than 37 billion liters of iced tea are consumed per year worldwide. While classic recipes still contain black tea with peach or lemon, there are now many herbal infusion recipes that don’t contain tea. These blends are specially designed to provide a refreshing and gourmet low-calorie drink.
