Is iced tea only popular in America?

Iced tea is a type of tea usually in a glass with ice. According to Wikipedia, 85% of tea drunk in America is iced tea unlike the rest of the world which drinks the normal hot tea. There are various reasons why iced tea is popular in America such as before refrigeration ice would be harvested in winter and stored until summer to be used to make iced tea which was an expensive luxury unlike other places in the world which did not have this climate. 

Iced tea recipes date back to the 1860s in the United States. Although originally it was considered as a novelty, it soon became widespread and popular among individuals from all different classes. Users of iced tea initially made it for themselves using recipes that were printed. However, it was soon being sold in hotels and railroad stations. Its use gained a momentum in the turn of the century when Richard Blechynden introduced the new product at the World’s Fair in St. Louis. The fair was held in 1904. 

The United States is the world biggest consumer of iced tea. The consumption is mainly in the southern regions of the country which are much warm to hot throughout the year. However, during summer, the consumption is at peak as the other regions of the country also join in to cool themselves with delicious and healthy ice tea products. Iced tea, however, is consumed in almost every country around the world. It is especially popular in India, Nepal, the UK, Malaysia, Philippines, Portugal, Spain, France, and South Africa. Turkey, Thailand, Vietnam, Romania, and Hungary are also major consumers of iced tea.
