Preservatives for Iced Sencha

So last time I made a big batch of Iced Sencha I had pure ascorbic acid Vitamin C powder around, don't have any at the moment.

Would adding lemon juice work?

... I do a touch of honey which somehow acts as a natural preservative.

Update, lemon juice makes it taste not so great, fail ;)

Tx for the honey tip but I don't like sweet tea and I'm not sure sugar would be the best preservative...

I've had batches taste not so fresh after just 2 days, so back to small batches or ascorbic acid ;)
