The best stuff on Earth? I beg to differ. Snapple is delicious, has vitamins and antioxidants, and will keep you hydrated and energized. I will not deny that. However, I do not like shelling out the $8.00 for a 6-pack of lemon tea. With a few simple ingredients, you can brew your own tea with the same health benefits, the same flavor (or a more customized flavor, your choice), and the pride of crafting something with your own two hands. Enjoy.


Step 1: Ingredients of a Winner

There are few things needed for this tea. For the sake of the readers, I have compiled a list:

-1 quart of water
-1 bag green tea
-1 bag black tea
-Lemon juice

-1 quart jar
-1 quart jar lid
-1 tablespoon measuring device
-Kitchen timer

Not pictured:

-1 1/2 quart sauce pan
-Saucepan lid
Nice one! Modified the recipe a little and its a perfect summer drink! Thank you!
The Pom liqueur I made through the ible here turns this Arnold Palmer into an amazing John Daly
Love it, only thing better is store bought, so much easier and cheaper.
would usin ices tea bags work instead of black tea bags?
This recipe requires regular-sized bags or family-sized bags of tea? I typically buy the family-sized bag use w/ the Mr. Coffee Iced Tea maker. Would like to give this method a shot.
I used regular sized bags, but family size would work also. You would need to adjust the steeping time.
This is the second most incredible iced tea that I have ever had!
About how much is a squirt? My lemon juice doesn't have a squirting lid just one that screws off.
It's about a tablespoon, but the lemon juice is more or less to taste.
Pretty close to how we used to make tea out on the Cape when I was a kid. We would add about a cup of fresh cranberry juice while it was warm for taste. Great job explaining the process, but you might want to remind noobs that try this to fully sanitize the jars before filling or you can get some weird crud growing in there and the taste gets horrible.
The tea in that jar just stays in the fridge for easy drinking. With the jars, you are right, they do need to be clean. Also, with the jars, you could pressure cook the tea for room temperature storage. Thanks for the input. Z
Looks good, will try!
