this was chosen and made as a test run for my get BBQ get togethers, I omitted adding in the lemon peel and used regular strong-brewed tea, it definately needed some extra sugar for sweetness, thanks for sharing Engrossed, will make again!...Kitten

This was very pretty! Looked great in my grandmother's punch bowl. The tea was an interesting addition. Will make again. Thanks!
