    I tried this and oh my it is lovely. It's nice to have such a. Great tasting refreshing drink that has no sugar, sheer heaven on a hot day  -  08 Nov 2013


    To speed up the chilling time, boil only 2 cups of water. In the meantime, refrigerate 6 cups of water and the lemon juice. (Or put several cups of ice in a large measuring pitcher, then add cold water to the 6 cup line.) After the tea bags have steeped, dissolve the sweetner in the hot tea, then add the tea mixture to the lemon-water mixture. Continue to refrigerate till chilled.  -  03 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used regular sugar. This tea was absolutely perfect. I drank a whole cup still warm and loved it. (Thanks to the previous reviewer for reviewing it, had I not seen your review, I would have never made it!) The orange pekoe was absolutely perfect.  -  24 May 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
