Black Tea Lemonade

Recipe by BussBoss2
READY IN: 31mins


  • 7
    tea bags (I use Earl Grey as we like the Bergamont flavor)
  • 12
  • 5
    cups water
  • 4 -5
    cups ice cubes
  • 6
    lemons, cut in 1/2 and drained of juices to make 1 cup
  • Optional
  • 3
    sprigs mint or 2 -3 tablespoons crushed dried mint


  • Boil 5 cups of water in tea kettle, then transfer boiling water to saucepan.
  • Add sugar, mix till disolved.
  • Add teabags, and mint (if desired), and bring back to boil.
  • Take off burner, and let tea bags and mint steep for 7-10 minutes, depending upon how strong you like your tea.
  • Discard tea bags and mint.
  • Add Lemon Juice and stir well.
  • Add ice cubes, and they will begin melting right away.
  • Stir, then pour contents into juice jug - ice cubes don't have to finish melting, they will do so in the jug.
  • Chill well; if you are in a hurry, serve over several ice cubes in a glass.
  • The flavor is quite different when adding the mint, so try it both ways to see which way you prefer it.
  • Note: This can also be made with limes, all other ingredients and measurements remain the same.
