I mixed it up and made this tea with Julius Meinl's Peach Green Tea, and substituted lemon juice since I didn't have limes, but it still turned out amazing! Great alternative to soda and powdered mixes without trying to be.

I made this for a brunch and it was a great hit. Would definately make this again.
