I adore iced tea in pretty much any form, with two exceptions: iced tea that comes out of a soda fountain, and iced tea that has been "sitting" for an extended period of time. Regrettably, restaurants and coffee shops alike seem to have an affinity for selling terrible iced tea. So I've decided to start a thread dedicated to finding the best iced tea in Manhattan. I'm pretty much open to restaurants, coffee shops, and perhaps canned/bottled iced teas. Consistency, I think, is an important element as well; there are lots of restaurants that have good iced tea one time, and then undrinkable iced tea the next. Interestingly, I think the best iced tea I've ever had in a restaurant was in a Spanish restaurant in Rhinebeck, NY, I should have asked what type of tea it was.
I'm looking forward to everyone's suggestions!
