Best tea to make iced tea

Q: I am not a fan of hot tea, but I really enjoy iced tea. Could you please recommend best teas that are good to make iced tea?
Do you have any teas that are specially blended for iced tea? Thanks.

A: Thank you for your email. Essentially any tea can be made into an iced tea. It is a matter of personal preference more than one tea is "better" than another.

Generally speaking, most people prefer fruitier tea for iced tea, something with strawberries, lemon, or mint even. 

If you are more keen of the kind of “southern US” kind of iced tea, then any plain black tea can do the trick, but I would recommend Ceylon Classic OP for its clarity and aroma, or lower tannin Chinese blacks such as Keemun and Lychee Red black tea.

Hope there is some “food” for thought there for you ?
