Tea Trivia Day 8

In what country was iced tea first introduced?

I realised this is not such an easy question. It is said that sweetened iced tea was first commercialised in the USA in 1904 World's Fair. However, people started drinking iced tea long before that. The oldest printed recipe of iced tea dates back to the 1870s. A newspaper clipping from 1890 describes the participants of a reunion of former Confederate soldiers from Missouri washing down 880 gallons of iced tea.

Iced tea gained popularity in China in the 19080s when canned and bottled teas even spread to rural.
