"I got this off a copycat site and have made it many times. It is great in summer as long as you are patient and make it beforehand so it has time to cool and chill. It's a really inexpensive way to make ice tea and works well as long as you use Orange Pekoe Tea bags. It's not half as nice with other flavoured tea bags."

"This was pretty close to the original but I actually like this more than the original. I really enjoyed the flavor of it. Thanks for sharing this one. Recipe was made for Fall PAC 2008."
"Just wonderful! needed a good base recipe, and I have never used orange pekoe tea before.
Made as written, tasted, and then doubled the lemon.
Ended up making it 3 days running, everyone was very impressed!
made for Aussie Swap March 2011"
"Can I just say - THANK YOU! I have been living in the UK for 12 years and one thing that I really miss from the US is Lipton Ice Tea. I used to smuggle the powder mix back with me in my suitcase - now I can save the weight allowance for other things! Don't suppose anyone knows a copycat recipe for Snyder's buffalo wing flavoured pretzel pieces?"
"Good ice tea and I enjoyed it with lemn. Thanks!"
"This is great! Just like what you buy and easy to make. I added some lime juice to make it Lemon/lime flavour - everyone was impressed! thanks for the recipe!"
"real easy and answers the question ... how is ice tea made."
"Yes this is as close as I could get to Liptons Instant Ice tea with Lemon. I received an Ice tea maker for my birthday so I am now seeing how many recipes I can find that will work for this. This is my first and it is excellent. Not to mention much cheaper than the presweetened, instant kind. Will be making this again."
