Reviews for Lemon Ice Tea Mix
"it was a taste of home and the country living. "
"I think this recipe was delicious. Especially considering that iced tea is normally consumed on hot and humid summer days when your sugar and hydration levels need to be maintained, I don't really see too much of a problem with the sweetness. As afore mentioned, use a sugar substitute if the amount used is a concern. "
"If you notice it's 7.5 cups of sugar but it makes 5 batches which equals 1.5 cups per serving like everyone is suggesting. Sounds good to me!"
"Personally prefer unsweetened real iced tea and a squeeze of an actual lemon. Just look at the chemicals I avoid!"
"unsweetened means no sweetner"
"Re: Lemon Ice Tea Boil 9 reg. teabags in a qt. of water. Strain and pour into a 1 gal. pitcher. Add 1 1/2 cups of sugar and 1/2 tub of Crystal Lite Pink Lemonade mix. Add enough cold water to fill the pitcher and stir. This recipe is easy and a lot cheaper to make. When serving, pour over ice cubes in your glass. Sometimes I add some chopped fresh ginger to the boiling water.?"
"You can easily convert the sugar to Splenda. The proportions would be the same...."
"As well as for those folks who are considering their calorie/sugar intake. I wish more recipes put a suger free version out alongside the original."
"NEEDS TO BE MADE WITH SPLENDA FOR DIABETICS :)"
