There are many benefits to brewing your own iced tea or making fresh lemonade citrus beverages at home and forgoing the commercially produced varieties. Here are two reasons that top my list:

1. Reduce Calories and Sugar. You can control the calories by limiting the amount sweeteners in your beverage. So replace those powered mixes and bottled version and cut calories.

2. Experiment with Flavor.  Brew your iced tea with green, black tea or white tea and used loose tea leaves for optimum flavor.  Combine with fresh herbs like mint varietals and add fresh fruit nectar. Don’t be afraid to try different combinations.  Likewise when making fresh lemonade or limeade, use your imagination.
