Tea! Nestles began making instant tea in the mid 1940's. The tea leaves are processed and all the liquid taken out. Then the temperature of the liquid concentrate is lowered until it is frozen. It is then dryed and packaged. Since the tea is then in a concentrated form, you only have to add water to have your afternoon tea.

Instant tea is made by seperately boiling water, and seperately boiling milk. Put some boiled water in the cup and dip a pouch of dip tea and add two sugar cubes and milk as per choice and mix it.


Answer by  Hiiro (117)

Instant tea isn't made of what normal tea is made of. While it does contain natural ingredients, instant tea is made specifically to have all of those dissolve in the hot water, while real tea has the leaves steep. These natural components vary from flavor to flavor, as well as all the chemicals used in the process.


Answer by  Shifter (96)

Instant tea is made by preparing tea, then dehydrating it. It's an extract that is concentrated under low pressure, and dried to a powder by freeze-drying, spray-drying, or vacuum-drying. Instant tea is typically made using the extracted liquor from black or green tea. It was first introduced in the United States in 1946 by the Nestle Corp.
