Why does my iced tea turn cloudy?

Question: Why does my iced tea turn cloudy?
Answer: Iced tea usually turns cloudy because you've chilled it too quickly, like putting it straight into the fridge while still quite warm. Various particles in the tea (like tannin) come out of solution and darken your iced tea.

Let your freshly made iced tea cool to room temperature before putting it in the fridge.
