"this had been my recipe which I had submitted back in 2002 for Taste of Home and I rewrote it & modified it! I changed the recipe to "Iced Lemon Tea" & it was used in healthy Cooking for 2012! I felt that the orange juice had muddied up the iced tea, so I purposely worked on perfecting this recipe! DELowenstein"
