你们好!

How do I say "Would you like some iced tea?" in Mandarin? My guess is: 您要不要冰茶?

谢谢!

    The grammar is correct, however, it may not be the most way we would ask.
    In colloquial Chinese, 冰茶 is less common than 冰红茶/冻柠茶 as the beverage name in my experience.

    Yes, '冰茶' is not very commonly heard. But '熱茶' is something that we are familiar with.

    To ask that question in Mandarin without specifying what variety the tea is, you may ask, '你要茶嗎', and then add, '冰的', which may make your suggestion more attractive in a scorching summer afternoon.
