Lemons: Lemon and not lime are used to make lemon tea. Make sure to pick yellow and juicy lemons. Even the zest of lemon is added. To get the zest, grate the lemon’s skin. Only and only yellow part of it should be used. The white part is bitter and should not be used.
Teabags: I have used green tea to make lemon tea. You can use regular tea bags. I prefer green as the flavor is not too strong and the lemony flavor captures the beverage. Which so ever tea bags you use, make sure to steep it for proper time. If you steep it too long, the tea would be bitter and won’t taste good.
Sweetener: Nothing for me. Yeah, I do not add sweetener in my lemon tea. You can add sugar or honey as per taste.
