R. Blechyden served tea with ice at the St. Louis World's Fair in 1904 and supposedly invented iced tea. Not true.
He may have popularized iced tea at the World's Fair, but he did not invent it. Iced tea had been around since at least since 1890.
It is mentioned in the Nevada Noticer, Sept 28, 1890; Nevada, Missouri - see: www.lyndonirwin.com/1904%20Tea.htm )
Snapple Iced Tea was introduced in 1987. The ready-to-drink iced tea category exploded, and Snapple added 14 new tea flavors over the next six years.
