      when my husband came home from work he had a glass and loved it so much we quickly drank the rest and I had to make another batch before the evening was done! Really refreshing and so simple to make.

      Made exactly as written. This tea is a lemony tea. With the limited steeping time the tea is light and not too heavy tea tasting. The fresh lemon juice makes it flavorful and it is indeed refreshing. Sweet but not too sweet. Nice for a warm afternoon. UPDATE: I had to change this to 5 stars after letting it chill overnight. The flavors are even better. It reminds me of that tea in a bottle from Snapple that you pay a couple bucks for. Thanks for posting. Enjoy! ChefDLH

      Mmmm...Super delicious, classic lemon tea. Sweet, but not too sweet. Thanks so much for the fool proof, keeper recipe!
