Lemon Iced Tea Recipe - Chichilicious

Lemon Iced Tea

With these humid and hot weather we’ve been getting lately, here is a super easy recipe that is so refreshing you’ll want to drink the whole jug to yourself. All you will need are lemons, black tea bags, and sugar! You can replace the sugar with honey but since I make this pretty often using honey would be get pretty pricey.

I prefer my tea more concentrated so that I can add lots of ice and a bit of water to dilute it, like that I can stretch it out.
