Answer
Hello Santiago

Where are you located is going to make a big difference about your desire to make Ice Tea.

The manufacturing line is composed of Tanks, mixing tanks, Heating and Cooling Pasteurizers, Filling equipment, Capping equipment, labeler and case packing. It will cost you about US $ 7million to put one production line.

Ingredients could be tea leafs, tea powders, Sugar, Citric acid and ascorbic acid, colors and flavors of your choice.

Hope this helps.
Regards

Jim
