How to Make Lime Ice Tea


  1. Pour the Ice tea out of the gallon jug into a pitcher or another gallon container. Drink a glass so there is room for the limes
  2. Prick the surface of the limes peel in several places with a fork. Do not penetrate the flesh, as that will allow the juice to leak through into the microwave.

    Place the limes on a paper towel in the microwave and heat the limes on high for 10 to 20 seconds. Remove the microwaved Limes and let them stand on the counter for one minute.

    Roll the limes a few times on the counter with the palm of your hand, applying gentle pressure to the fruit.

    Cut in half and squeeze the juice into the tea. Cut the halves into quarters and drop into the tea.
    Refrigerate overnight
    You may need additional sweetner. Depending how you like your tea I know I do.
