I really liked this iced tea, and especially by "Grandma". The taste was really nice, used sugar, Lipton iced' tea bags, (2 of the larger size) and lemonade mix, (although I confess being confused about the "1 inch" part, so I just measured a tablespoon of the drink mix, and went from there.) I let the tea bags sit in the mixture for about 10 minutes and removed them, without pressing them so the tea wouldn't be to bitter. This was really great, and we enjoyed it! I can see using some frozen lemonade concentrate in place of the mix too. Thank you so much Dana!
