  1. Firstly I have to say I love your word ‘yummilicious’ 😀 That sounds like a perfect description for this iced tea. Do you add the lemons to the tea whilst it is cooking though… or just use them for a garnish? I couldn’t tell from the recipe? Thanks for sharing at Fiesta Friday – it’s sunny in the UK this weekend (finally!) so we definitely need a drink like this! 🙂
