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"
