Iced tea has become very popular lately. I love drinking it cold or hot. But I’m worried about its shelf life.
Can it really last forever?
Iced tea is a refreshing beverage that goes well with almost anything.
The problem is, it tends to get stale after a couple of days. This happens because ice cubes melt over time.
When they do, their flavor gets diluted.
It’s true that iced tea does tend to spoil faster than other beverages such as milk or juice. But you don’t have to throw away your entire supply. There are ways to extend the shelf life of your favorite drink.
Here’s how to store it properly.
What is the best way to tell if iced tea has gone bad?
If the iced tea is cloudy, there might be bacteria in your drink. You need to discard it immediately. If you notice this happen with your favorite hot beverage, here are some ways to extend its life.
– Put fresh ice in your glass and wait at least 30 minutes before drinking the tea.
After that, if it’s still clouded, you’re probably in for a bad experience that will spoil the whole batch of tea!
– Try not to shake up frozen ice cubes or stir up any of them with a spoon or other utensil as this will affect their quality and flavor (there are no freezers for that).
When they’re ready to serve refresh them by putting fresh ice directly into each glass then shaking/ stirring it around as needed until they melt again.
This also helps if you want a different-tasting drink without having so many cups sitting on your freezer shelf waiting to be consumed by guests who can’t wait ’til morning!
The iced tea has a strange off-odor about it.
The most common reason that makes tea go bad faster than others are its high level of tannins which are not easily destroyed even when stored correctly under room temperature(upstairs) or even refrigerated condition but may turn out toxic(rotten) after some time(time taken by microbes). Tannins get broken down quickly by sunlight which reduces their shelf life but if kept under controlled conditions like refrigeration or frozen storage then they remain stable till expiration date mentioned on its packaging . However keeping tea aside from sunlight may change its color/ taste/ fragrance but tannins do not reduce its shelf life .
Tannins break down quickly when exposed either directly from sunlight or from lighten due its dark pigment(anthocyanin) ,but exposure from ultraviolet radiation(UV rays) may result into rapid degradation thus reducing shelf life dramatically . UV radiation occurs due either from direct exposure or due from air currents near food items stored under refrigeration conditions .
The hue of the iced tea changes.

How long before tea goes bad in fridge?
Tea leaves go bad when they are exposed directly from sunlight or lighted by artificial light sources such as fluorescent lights which are not very good at preserving foods like tea leaves because they contain high levels of ultraviolet radiation which can cause oxidation within hours after exposure even if there are no visible signs on them yet. Tea leaves also go bad if stored at room temperatures above 40 degrees fahrenheit (4 degrees celsius) because they absorb moisture from air at room temperatures thus causing mold growth within days after storage.
