Ice Tea Applications

Iced tea is 98% water. Produce clear, refreshing, iced tea beverages – every time – with a Pentair Everpure® water treatment solution, and protect your brewing equipment investment at the same time.

Foodservice iced tea sales have been rising steadily in recent years, with many customers choosing it as a great-tasting, healthy alternative to soft drinks. What could be more healthy and refreshing than iced tea made with fresh, clean, filtered water from Pentair Everpure? Our premium quality filtered water addresses taste and aesthetic concerns around: 

  • Hardness that can lead to cloudy iced tea. Minerals in the water prevent tannins from dissolving properly, which can darken the beverage and leave an “oil slick” on the tea’s surface.
  • Chlorine which can alter both aroma and taste. It oxidizes aromatics and oils and increases acidity.
  • TDS can cause poor solids extraction. Over-extraction of flavonoids and tannins cause bitterness and leave a “film” on top of the tea. Under-extraction leads to weak color and flavor.
  • Scale buildup in equipment can cause improper brewing temperatures. Too high and tea can taste burnt and bitter. Too low and complex flavors disappear.

Pentair Everpure filtration solutions put you in control of your iced tea water recipe, and reduce scale damage and corrosion to brewing equipment for:

  • Consistent, premium water quality for great-tasting iced tea.
  • Lower downtime, equipment maintenance and replacement costs.
  • Energy cost savings of up to 40%.
  • Satisfied customers.
  • Increased profitability.
