Honey Lemon Iced Tea

11 Aug 2013

I can't believe how warm it has been the last week or so even though it is technically still winter! I have been having so much warm honey and lemon drinks I think its time to cool it down since the sun is shining! And I'm sure all you others in the hot summer weather would appreciate this recipe too!

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!
