We are an ice tea lovin' family. This was wonderful. I also subbed Splenda for the sugar. Very refreshing and something I will make again. Made for Football Pool Week 1 Win. Congrats.

Great tea, cool and so refreshing! The lemon/lime was wonderful, a nice sweet/tart flavor with the tea. I used splenda instead of sugar with good results. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

There is something so wonderfuly Southern about sipping sweat tea and this new variation does not disappoint! I subbed splenda for the sugar and this was a perfect not too tangy not too sweet tea to drink while taking a break from gardening! Thanks for posting! This will for sure go into our list of teas to make again and again during a hot Southern summer! Made for PAC Spring 2010!
