“I make at least a gallon of this every day. Simple and satisfying. My husband has to have his sweet tea, so this cuts back the calories and stretches those little tubs. For those who don't use sugar substitutes, I have also made it with lemonade flavored kool aid and sugar- the ice cool lemonade flavor goes great in it.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 regular tea bags (orange pekoe and black)
  • 14.17 g container sugar-free lemonade-flavored drink mix (Crystal Light, etc.)
  • 3785.0 ml water, divided

Directions

  1. Bring 2-3 cups of water to a boil. Pour into gallon size pitcher, add tea bags and steep for 5-10 minutes, to taste. (I have left it overnight before; leave it as long as you like, the longer it steeps the stronger it gets, but 10 minutes is sufficient.).
  2. Remove tea bags, and add the lemonade mix. Top with cold water and ice to fill the pitcher. I usually don't have ice, and just chill it a few hours in my fridge.
