Reviews for Lemonade Iced Tea
"Such an improvement from the powdered mixes of ice tea! Like what little sweet/tart the lemonade gives it. Definitely leave out the sugar and those who like it sweeter just add their own. Very refreshing!"
"I used pink lemonade that was suggested by an earlier reviewer, but added one packet of sweet-n-low instead of the sugar and it is perfect."
"This is a great summer drink. I changed it up by using pink lemonade and wow what a difference!!!"
"Easy to make and it was a hit with my family, especially since I used decaf tea bags. I didn't add any sugar, and it was sweet enough for us. I'll be making this all summer!"
"A refreshing version of iced tea."
"I didn't add any sugar, and used decaf tea bags. We all liked it. It was nice and light."
"I am hooked. This is so much better than the store bought drink. I make my own lemonade concerntrate which makes it even better."
"I keep this in the fridge most of the summer. It was too sweet for my taste so I make it minus the sugar and we add our own sweetener to our glass. This way everyone has it the way they like it."
"Very tasty! I used 3/4 c. sugar, but would use less next time...I don't like it too sweet."
"What would you recommend if lemonade concentrate is unavailable?"
