Reviews for Lemon-Orange Iced Tea
"I guess it depends on the orange juice you use, but mine came out almost like a punch. Also, did not have the tub, but used 3 of the on-the-go packets. The lemonade makes it just the right flavor where you don't have to use the sugar or sweetener. Very good, and even my 5 yr old said MMMMM!! Thanks again!"
