Iced tea, which is popular in the USA, is gaining popularity all over the world. In fact, it was created in America by a mere accident in 1904. That day Mr.Richard Blichinden tried to introduce hot black tea to his compatriots at the World trade fair in Saint-Louis. Unfortunately, his upsurge remained unrequited because of the unbearable heat. To improve the situation Richard Blichinden started serving iced tea. The decision was crucial. As a result of this classical business story a new class of beverage – Iced teas – appeared.
