Coffee Plantation
It was only a few years ago that Coffee Plantation had locations all over the metro Phoenix area; now, there is just one, near Scottsdale Rd. and Shea Blvd. in Scottsdale. Luckily, the iced tea is as good as ever. The mellow atmosphere is a great place to hang out with friends or do some work done. While this is a coffee shop, the iced tea is where its at. The green-mango iced tea is blended with the freshest ingredients and brewed hot and poured over ice. Normally in tea, a hint of fruit is only detected, but this drink heavily relies on the sweet-tasting mango to be refreshing. And this iced tea may just be the best tea in the Valley, so help keep the last plantation outpost alive.

Souvia Tea Room
Looking for a large selection of teas? Moon Valley's Souvia Tea has nearly 140 types. While most places only serve the traditional iced black or green tea, Souvia's a bit more adventurous with their flavors. Souvia's teas come from all over the world, and include not only black and green teas, but also oolong, herbals, and botanicals. Souvia features a unique tea experience with its different varieties of tea as well as classes in brewing and enjoying tea. On my most recent trip to Souvia, I chose the exotic Rooibos spiced with carrot and orange peel. The orange colored beverage managed to mix a tangy orange with bitter carrot to make an oddly refreshing tea. The tearoom already has two teas freshly brewed and iced, but if those don't tickle your fancy, feel free to browse the store and find the right tea for you, though it may take quite some time.

Pita Jungle

There's a good chance that if you are a healthy eater, you have probably eaten at Pita Jungle. We're not so into healthy -- but we go to Pita Jungle just for the iced tea. This freshly brews some of the best that Passport has to offer. There is the always tasty and smooth black passion fruit or for those who have more of a sweet-tooth Pita also serves a decaffeinated hibiscus tea with a cool berry flavor and strawberry-kiwi green tea. And there is probably a location near you, with locations in just about every part of the Valley.

I'm from the South (TN) so I'm picky about my tea. Wildflower and Pita jungle are pretty good.
