Along time ago I fell in love......oh sounds like the start of a proper love story doesn't it? It is really as I did become very fond of the Lemon Iced Tea at Costa. Well guess what? They only stopped selling it!! How rude! They sell the peach flavour but I don't Peach I want Lemon.
This only meant one thing........I would just have to make my own. Now I knew they made it from tea (not rocket science), they added ice and a slice of lemon, then I just couldn't for the life of me think what was missing. I loved the fact it was quite sweet and tried sweetener and sugar but it just wasn't right. Then I remembered, it had lemon syrup in it so off I popped onto Amazon (of course) to look for some syrup.
Behold, as my son likes to say at the moment. There were many bottles of lemon syrup but I ordered this Sweetbird one as I've ordered this brand before in the coffee syrups. They are a bit pricey these big bottles of syrups but I do try to make them last. Famous last words......make it last? With the amount of tea I drink? Oh well wishful thinking or maybe I'm just trying to find my thrifty sensible head.
Now it was complete. I would just make a lemon tea, let it cool, add ice a slice and some lemon syrup.......perfect and what I save in Lemon Iced Tea at Costa I can buy more lemon syrup. Hurrah!!! It is also so refreshing in this warm weather, a great alternative if you don't fancy a warm brew.
