Is Long Island Ice Tea really tea?

Since it has liquors in it, I wouldn't think it would have the same health benefits as other teas. It does have tea in it, but also other ingredients, that's why it's normally sold in a bar. Not sure who first introduced it, but I would think it is all American.

Very deceiving name for a drink, eh? It doesn't have tea in it at all, the name is for its color. It's made with tequila,rum,gin,vodka and triple sec with a splash of cola for color. As the name implies it was first made in Oak Beach Inn in Long Island, New York. I always it was tea and booze, they should have called it Long Island coke :)
