What a wonderful, comforting drink! I made it with equal, I used 6 packets. It was so very delicious. And so fast. We wanted it hot,so after I added the lime, I heated it on low until it was of drinking temperature. The lime flavor is outstanding!! I want to try it over ice also. Thanks so much NurseDi!!
I have made this several times this summer. This is one of the best fruit/tea combinations I have ever tried. I also used Equal instead of sugar and if worked just fine. Very refreshing and tangy. My kids are always saying, "Mom, don't forget to make that lime stuff." Big winner!! Thanks Nurse Di.
Add me to the growing list of Lime Tea fans. Next time, for my taste, I'll use a bit more tea and a bit less Splenda. Thanks for posting this very nice change of pace drink! We'll be making a lot of it this summer.
