Ready to drink iced tea is a form of prepared tea. A number of iced teas are currently produced and sold in Australia.
As with all beverages, iced teas produced by members of the Australian Beverages Council must comply with the regulations of Food Standards Australia New Zealand (FSANZ).

The caffeine levels in iced teas are consistent. Conventionally-brewed teas, however, contain varying amounts of caffeine depending on the type of tea, growing conditions, and how it is prepared. Iced teas are a good way to stay hydrated, and many contain antioxidants.

  • Black Tea and Green Tea originate from the same plant, Camellia Sinesis. It’s the treatment of the leaves that makes different types of tea
  • Tea contains polyphenols – antioxidants that can repair cells
  • Ready to drink tea is often available unsweetened, offering a low kilojoule option for thirsty Australians
