    This was very good iced tea. I substituted splenda for the sugar and it was very tasty and refreshing. Plus it made a lot, perfect for family gatherings.

    Doesn't anyone use REAL LEMONS any more??? I have a lemon tree that is bearing more fruit than I can use, but try and find a recipe that calls for lemon! I prefer fresh lemon juice and artificial sweetener to the high-calorie canned variety!
