If you have taken the iced tea in the last 3-4 minutes, then vomiting it out might help. Another option is to drink lots of water to flush out the infective organisms. But usually if bacteria or fungi are prsent then they start acting almost immediately on the body cells. If your immunity is good then you might not get any infection, but if you do get signs of any diarhheoa, nausea, vomiting fever etc, then you will need to consult your doctor for prescription antibiotics.
