Black Tea Lemonade

A drink..

that is making me want the warm weather days to come even quicker. I don’t drink iced coffee at all (I stick to hot year round), but I do love iced tea. This Black Tea Lemonade looks so refreshing, and I’ll be enjoying my own happy hour by adding a splash of vodka in the evening. Thank you Honey and Jam!


4 large black tea bags (or 6ish regular sized tea bags)
6 cups of water

1 cup sugar
1 cup water (for the simple syrup)
1 cup lemon juice (from 4-6 lemons)


Bring 6 cups of water to boil, remove from heat, add tea bags and allow to steep for 10 minutes.

While the tea steeps, make your simple syrup: heat the water and sugar in a small saucepan until the sugar is completely dissolved. Meanwhile, juice your lemons.

Combine the lemon juice, simple syrup, and steeped tea in a pitcher. Stir! Refrigerate for about an hour.
