This is a recipe that I made up as I went. We were at meeting and I wanted to drink some tea, but it was way too hot. I decided I would just wait for it to cool down and then add lemon juice and sugar, and it actually worked! It’s a pretty simple recipe, and I’m sure I’m not the first one to come up with these ratios, but it was good and I thought I’d share it here.
