ok, this might sound kind of obvious, but i think i want to have iced tea on tap too. if i keg it, and use co2 to push it, will it be carbonated? should i use, nitrogen, or possibly argon.

i know a reasturant near me tops off wine bottles with argon to keep them. what should i use?

If you use CO2, it will carbonate. If you use Ar or N2, it will remain still.

Yes, price is the biggest (and only practical) difference.

I'd go with nitrogen, i believe it's cheaper. At least its cheaper then co2.

Could always go with helium, that's be a blast.

How long would Ice Tea keep in a Keg? It tends to taste nasty after a few days in the fridge. Even if its not opened. I am talking about home made tea.

That would depend on if it was boiled and sterile or sun tea. Sun tea (or any non boiled tea) is full of bacteria and only keeps for a couple days.
