Lemon Iced Tea | How to make Lemon Iced Tea is preservative free as it’s homemade. I am beginning to appreciate brewing my own iced tea in the past couple of years as I’m in control of the quality of ingredients. The home brewed teas are free of added artificial colors and flavoring agents.

A few things to keep in mind while making the best iced tea are..
Steeping – Let the tea bags steep well. Not too long else the color of the tea will turn way too dark. Even the flavor can deepen beyond necessary.

Flavor – I have used basic tea bags. No particular flavor. But feel free to use flavored tea bags like peach, orange, berry, etc.. Everything tastes really nice.

Sweetener – Use stevia, sugar or any sweetener as per your preference.
