An easy, inexpensive and healthy beverage
to prepare and serve
on those beautiful sunny days with your loved ones...
Prep: 15 Mins.
7 tea bags (Green Tea, Oolong, Lipton, or your choice of herbal tea)
2 cups boiling water
2 tablespoons fireweed honey [click for recipe]
1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cups cold water
Heat 2 cups of water to boiling in a teapot. Pour into a 4-cup glass (heatproof) measuring cup, filling up to the 2-cup point. Steep for 10 minutes, exactly (set a timer).
After squeezing the teabags using a slotted spoon, discard them.
Add the fireweed honey and lemon juice, stir to combine. Add cold water until the 4-cup liquid measure is reached; stir a final time to incorporate.
Pour sweetened tea into a 1-quart pitcher. To serve, pour over ice in individual glasses.
Store in a pitcher, covered, in refrigerator. ~ Enjoy!
To ensure maximum flavor of your iced tea, make sure your ice cubes are freshly made, as they change flavor over time when too old.
