I liked this well enough, but I have to agree this recipe is misnamed. No lemon to be seen, so it should be called limeade. At any rate, it's pretty easy. I used splenda instead of sugar, and it worked fine. I didn't think it needed more sweetening, but I'm not a fan of sugar in my tea. I used a mint green tea, and I liked that flavor, but bf wasn't impressed. Not sure if it's the mint or the whole idea he didn't like but he didn't drink it. I enjoyed it, though, and may try with plain green tea next time. thanks for the recipe!

I agree that the name really ought to be 'limeaide'...I used Lipton's Green Tea with Honey hoping for extra sweetness. I still ended up adding plenty of sugar and a little extra lime juice to get the flavor just right. Will play around with amounts again...

I changed it up a little bit. Only half cup boiling water over 3 tea bags. Chilled that then used 1/4 cup for each of 2 servings. Instead of sugar I used 5 drops stevia and used 2 pkts True Lime per serving. Added it to a large mason jar and filled with ice and seltzer. Very refreshing. Have now made this with True Lemon and True Orange as well as the True Lime, 2 pkts each time. So Good!

This drink was okay, but the name is very misleading. I would call it "Fizzy Iced Tea". There is no lemon in it - just a little splash of lime juice, and not enough sweet or sour to be called lemonade. The flavor is dry. I added more sugar and lime juice, and it was much improved.
