Lemon juice and other citrus juices (excluding grapefruit) enhance the absorption of the effective catechin chemicals from green tea, giving you more benefit from each cup.
The woman's World article provides a recipe for over 12 cups which will last two days, with the tea brewed in a pitcher.

Add the juice from 6 lemons.
Add Liquid Stevia to taste.
Mint or fresh ginger slices may be added for variety, but it must remain sugar-free.
