We are a family of tea lovers. We drink it with just about every meal and have to add sugar and lemon juice to each glass. I loved the idea of using the concentrate but didn't have it on hand so I tried it with lemonade mix (Crystal Light) and it turned out perfectly. Thanks for the idea Sue-ellen. Read More

Made this with "store-brand" lemonade... no distinct flavor and too much sweetness. Yuk! Read More

I love lemon flavor ice tea and this was great. I added more sugar (added 1 additional cup) because we were going to be outside and it is summer time and it is hot outside plus I knew we were going to add ice to the tea mixture. But to us adding the 1 additional cup did not make it too sweet it was just right. Read More

I used decaf orange pekoe tea bags as I am expecting and trying to cut down on caffeine and it turned out great. I added 1 extra tea bag and decreased the concentrate by a bit for less sweet. Read More

I didn't have lemonade concentrate so I used 1/2 cup lemon juice and an additional 3/4 cup of sugar. However I found that the tea flavor wasn't quite strong enough for that much water. I think next time I'd use more tea bags and less lemon. Read More
