Why baking soda is added to Iced Tea?

Hi,

I love iced-tea a lot. So I decided that I should learn to make it at home. I found a recipe online. When dipping 4 tea bags in hot water it used 1/8 tsp of baking soda. I didn't understand the reason behind it. Can anyone plz share why baking soda is to be used?

Thanks.
