Tried this hot several months ago, when I was feeling under the weather and feeling like a lemon tea might perk me up. It was too tart, and adding sweetener to it made it taste like hot lemonade.
Now that the weather here is sweltering, iced tea is a lovely treat. Unfortunately, I drink so much, if I’m not careful, I will be awake all night. An herbal tisane is an ideal iced drink in the evening.
It makes a lovely, pale yellow cup of iced tea. I can definitely taste the lemon and lime, though I’m not sure what the marigold did besides add color. I didn’t find the need to add sweetener, as it’s lovely enough on its own, though I imagine it would bring out the citrus flavor even more.
