Think tea in the US and you're probably thinking iced. While that may be true, it was not always the case. Tea plays a large part in early American history.  As a British colony they did sipped it. But about 250 years ago it became unpatriotic to do so. We give you a very quick Boston Tea Party lesson.

With warmer climates and sugar and ice, changed everything.  This led to regional tea traditions and the establishment of a number local tea manufacturers. After that came the bottled tea varieties. 

A few mysteries solved along the way... 
why is it called Snapple, 
why is it called an Arnold Palmer,
who is the hippy tea company with $100m in annual sales,
what is in Constant Comment,
and why is not even called that?
