Easy Ice Tea (Clone/Copycat of Lipton Ice Tea)

Easy Ice Tea (Clone/Copycat of Lipton Ice Tea) created by Sharon123

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.

    Just wonderful! needed a good base recipe, and I have never used orange pekoe tea before. <br/>Made as written, tasted, and then doubled the lemon.<br/>Ended up making it 3 days running, everyone was very impressed!<br/>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?
