Equal parts peppermint and Silver Needle is awesome, iced or hot.

Adagio's Mango or Passionfruit black teas both go well over ice. I just make them a teeny bit more strong than usual.

For a lovely, caffeine free iced tea I use equal parts lemongrass, peppermint and ginger. It's a smooth, light taste and quite refreshing without overstaying its welcome.

For my tastes, it has to be black tea- usually unflavored- but something like Constant Comment (Orange Spice) makes a great change of pace. It seems the fruit flavors taste better than other flavors. I made up a pitcher of Adagio's Capricorn the other day (Irish Breakfast, Coconut and maybe Vanilla) and don't care for it too much as an iced tea.

I love to have a Rooibos + Spearmint iced tea for caffeine free.

Adagio's strawberry black is excellent iced.

I'm not too big on flavored teas, but there are a few that I like very much iced. Adagio's Ginger Peach is excellent and they have a blend called Raspberry Lime Rickey that's good also. These both have a black (Ceylon) tea as their base. And of course, there's iced chai. Yum!

Any white or green would be delicious iced. I personally don't like black hot or iced. My favorite flavors are mint and ginger.

Peach is my favorite flavor for iced tea. I made a signature blend of white peach and peach oolong called "Life's a Peach" and it's good hot and fabulous iced. Another interesting iced tea signature blend is Tequila Sunrise... a combo of white teas and blood orange... very nummy. Warm Smell of Colitas is very good iced as well. Sorry for self-promoting, but these are the blends I know best because I created them around my own preferences.

I made a decaff tisane signature blend in honor of the Twilight movie that has been really popular, called #1 Freakin Twilight Fan... wild strawberry, cherry, and blood orange, to make a nice red brew for all those blood-lust people.

I also really like iced Moroccan Mint or Casablanca Twist... very refreshing. And my most common choice for iced tea is an unflavored darjeeling or oolong, because i just love those flavors so much.

Moroccan is my favorite mint tea, especially iced. White pear is yummy too!

I don't know of any flavor that wouldn't be good iced! I made iced Earl Grey this morning! Nice little pick-me-up!

My favorite iced tea so far is honeydew white from TeasEtc. Something about honeydew and white tea goes great over ice.

For some reason, I have a psychological block trying unflavored teas iced. I've been thinking for a while that a good pi lo chun would make excellent iced tea, but I feel like I'd be wasting it. Iced tea seems to be more forgiving of quality, so I tend to use flavored teas that have lower-quality leaves.
