here's how you can make it too:
4 cups boiling water
7 bags of black tea (try blueberry or earl grey for something exciting)- i use 7 tsp. of black tea leaves
steep for 15-20 minutes
remove bags and add 2/3 cup sugar to taste. *note: i don't like mine as sweet and have started to use only 1/2 cup of sugar. both have played to mixed reviews- my friend had a glass of the first batch i made and exclaimed that it tasted 'just like lipton's', but when i told her there was 2/3 cup of sugar it in, i think she may have wanted to spit it out. thennnn, when i made it with only 1/2 a cup, that friend actually asked if i had any sugar to add to it. so, to each their own. play around with it.
1/2 cup lemon juice to taste
4 cups of cold water
p.s. you'll have to mix it with a wooden spoon everytime you want some because the lemon and sugar settle a bit. also, remember if you're making it in a glass pitcher, to put a metal spoon in the container before you pour in the boiling water to displace the heat and not end up with a big crack- thanks mom :)
