Add fresh chopped mint to your lemonade. It sounds weird, but it is soooooo good!

Growing up we had a lemon tree in the yard and always had fresh lemonade. I'm drinking a glass of Country Time now, not the same but still good.

Perhaps those folks who think it tastes off were using a commercial product that wasn't made with cane sugar? I could see that altering the taste, otherwise, it should make no difference

I like it sour. I use one cup of fresh lemon juice with two cups of Nestle Purelife water. I add ice and drink.

It caused me to make iced tea with black tea, Celestial Seasonings Lemon Zinger and lemon peel. I added a little lemon juice once it was cool. No sugar or sweetener.

It's pretty good. I think I need another Lemon Zinger bag because it's a bit weak. Still tasty, though. Even my 20 something son liked it! Next time I'll use another black tea bag, Lemon zinger bag or just add some lemon juice to the finished product, which I'm doing now. I like it more than the traditional iced tea, lemonade mix because I find that to be too sweet.
