Sugar-free lemonade drink mix is the perfect ingredient to add to traditional iced tea. It not only tastes cool and refreshing, but also cuts out extra calories. I rely on this beverage during the hot days of summer, but also enjoy it year-round. —Dawn Lowenstein, Hatboro, Pennyslvania

"This is really good and so easy. I had a lot of tea bags, some given to me; so I have been making this on a regular basis. Easy & delicious!!"
