Vancouver Foodster Iced Tea Challenge

Welcome to the Vancouver Foodster Iced Tea Challenge. I have invited cafes from all over the city to enter their Iced Tea creations into this challenge, some have entered their most popular creation from their menu and others created a special Iced Tea creation just for this challenge. Each cafe will be featuring their special Iced Tea creation on their menu from July 12- August 5, 2018.

How Does this all Work? For the public challenge, you are invited to go out and order any or all of the Iced Tea creations in this challenge, then you decide who you think has the best Ice Tea creation for the People’s Choice award winners. 

Share your experiences: Social share by tweeting, instagraming or snapchating your photos throughout the challenge, our twitter and instagram address is @vanfoodster and the hashtag is #IceTeaChallengeYVR

Voting criteria –  some things to help you judge your favourite iced tea creations – keep these things in mind: originality, creativity, uniqueness, traditional, non-traditional, price, value and most importantly taste.

Get some friends together and make a day or night of it, visit 2 places or more to taste the different Iced Tea creations or go solo or with a friend– just remember to VOTE for your favourites

Here are the Iced Tea creations in this challenge, listed in no particular order other than when they were received by us.
