Best Iced Tea Glasses

As humans, we love inventing things as much as we like designating those inventions to single purposes. As is the case with the iced tea glass, which was designed to show off the color and aesthetic of the ice cubes and tea inside perfectly portioned glassware. They became popular in the 50s and 60s as the drink itself became increasingly prominent. But whether you fill it with iced tea, juice, sangria, or water, iced tea glasses have become a staple in many modern homes and restaurants. We decided to take a look at a few modern iced tea glasses and see what all the fuss was about. Compiled below is our selection of some of the best options available. Cheers!
