When life gives you money for lemons.. make iced tea!

Finally a recipe for good iced tea! I like iced tea and I have tried some recipes before, and always I have disappointed. But this works! Thousand thanks to Jasse for sharing this recipe with me. I modified the recipe a little bit, after making the iced tea I realized that maybe the purpose was not to squeeze the limes (?) The recipe wasn’t so clear about this. If that is the case, you need more lemons than one.
