Honey and Lemon Iced Tea Makes: A good jug full
2 tea bags (I use Lipton yellow label)
6 heaped tablespoons of honey (I use New Zealand Manuka honey)
1 cup boiling water
3 cups cold water
lots of ice
1. Put the tea bags and honey in a jug and add the boiling water. Leave until tea is brewed then remove and discard the tea bags.
2. Finely slice the lemons, then remove the seeds.
3. Add the lemons and cold water to the brewed tea mixture. Lightly press the lemon slices with a large wooden spoon to release the juice into the tea.
4. Add heaps of ice to the tea.
5. Serve and enjoy!
This refreshing drink is perfect for a summer BBQ with a bunch of friends. It is much healthier compared to the store bought iced teas without the additives and extra sugar. I can't wait for the New Zealand summer to come so I can experience some warm weather and yummy fresh food! Have fun!
