  • 3 black tea bags substitute with green tea or white tea
  • 5 lemons
  • 1/2 cup agave nectar or 4 tablespoons stevia or 11/2 teaspoons liquid stevia
  • 1 gallon water 4 cups for boiling, the remaining cold water
  • 2 cups ice cubes
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves fresh, loosely packed


  • Boil the 4 cups of water and steep the teabags for 5 minutes, squeezing out the teabags into the water when removing. You want a strong tea as it will be blended with lemonade.
  • Add the sweetener to the hot tea and stir. Squeeze five lemons over a fine mesh strainer to catch the seeds and into a bowl. You can also remove the seeds by hand.
  • Add the ice cubes to a large pitcher and pour the steeped hot tea over. Add the cold water and the squeezed lemon juice. Taste your Nantucket. If more sweetener is needed, add it now.
