I have been looking for a black tea lemonade recipe, instead of always going to Starbucks for one. I made this exactly like it said. Next time I will use 5 tea bags to make it stronger, I found the lemonade a bit overwelming. Sugar amount was good. I will definitely make this again.It's a great non-alcoholic alternative.


Very good and very simple. My husband is hooked. The only change I made was to use 5 teabags vs. 3 and to let the tea brew 10-15 minutes before adding the lemonade.


Submitter here to update things. Since submitting this recipe, I've updated this myself to what I consider a more perfect blend. I actually have started using 5 tea bags as others suggest. (3 regular, 2 decaf so no one lies awake at night :) ) I dump the bags in the bottom of a juice jug, cover with a few cups of boiling water and let steep until very strong and remove the bags. Then I add the sugar, *half* a can of lemonade concentrate undiluted and, here's the part I feel really finishes it, a sprig's worth of mint leaves. I stir all this up (the sugar doing some muddling of the mint for me) and then add as much water as the jug will hold. So, four stars for the old recipe, but for my purposes, this new version is the real five-star winner :) Hope you enjoy!
