Cold tea is made from tea extract. It’s brewed, dried, and turned into a powder at the end which will be transported and later diluted with water. As a result, the bottle can contain less than 1% of tea itself, and the rest is sugar, water, and flavorings.
- If the composition doesn’t contain the words "tea extract," it means the bottle contains ordinary water which was made similar to tea with the help of various additives.
- As a rule, cold tea doesn’t contain fresh leaves and natural berries — the manufacturers use flavorings (not always natural).
