Modified this recipe to make it lighter and more natural. i used only 1/3 cup of sugar and squeezed in two lemons instead of lemonade mix. Chopped the mint instead of crushed and let it float around the ice cubes. it's really light and refreshing! Read More

Fabulous. I used this recipe as a basic idea for what I wanted. I didn't use regular tea. Instead I used flavored (black cherry or raspberry) caffeine free tea so the kiddos could have some. I boiled 8 bags in 2 quarts of water (approximately). Instead of adding water and juice concentrate I added a bottle of Simply Lemonade. I only added 1/2 cup sugar to mellow the tartness. Adding the fresh mint the night before was the winning touch. EVERYONE loved it. Even the people who don't drink tea. Read More

I love this stuff. I also made it with regular brewed tea and I used lemonade powder instead of frozen concentrate. So refreshing on these ridiculously hot summer days. Thanks! Read More

This tea was such a hit at a baby shower! I made real iced tea the night before and chilled it. I then added the lemonade concentrate and water. I did not crush the mint leaves. I let them float in the to of the punch bowl. I would only sugest to dilute it a tad bit more with water. Or just taste before serbing. I also froze mint leaves in ice cubes the night before. It was a very refreshing drink on a hot day in Louisiana. Read More

My husband loved this drink. He told me I could make it everyday. I will experiment with the amount of sugar in the future. I think you could use half as much sugar and it would still taste good. Read More

I loved this refreshing tea. It's great in the summer time with fresh mint from the garden. The hubby gave it a thumbs up and we even added a little vodka to it to make it an adult only drink! Read More

My family loves it! Mint and all. If all you have is sweet instant tea just don't add sugar. It is still good. Read More

Very refreshing. I brewed regular tea rather than using instant. I also used about half as much sugar and lots of whole mint leaves. Turned out great! Read More

I used this recipe as a base to what I was trying to make and it turned out great. I used rasberry instant iced tea 12 oz of frozen lemonade concentrate and half the sugar. It was pretty sweet but turned out great! Read More
