I think of iced tea as one of the more strikingly OOP things the SCA 
does. In your case, the use of tea fits the theme--but do we have any 
evidence that it was drunk iced as well as hot in asia in period?

If I read the menu correctly, you are mixing period recipes with 
modern ethnic recipes--at least, I don't know of any period source 
for Ukrainian Cucumber Salad or some of the others. Do you do 
anything to keep your diners from concluding that, since they are 
being served in a medieval feast many of whose recipes are period, 
they must be period as well?
