ice tea vs. iced tea


Is there any difference between ice tea and iced tea?

Not when we say it, unless we allow a pause between the two words, which wouldn’t sound very natural. As far as I know, ‘iced tea’ is more correct (and logical, too, in my opinion). Maybe this is another one of those regional things?

I agree that iced tea is technically the “correct” form.

As Conchita mentioned, when you pronounce iced tea it sounds like ice tea – and probably for this reason alone, you will also see ice tea in written form quite often.
