Early last spring, I came down with a nasty respiratory infection that really took hold on me.  The hubby encouraged me to drink ‘hot toddies’ consisting of hot tea, lemon and local honey.  For awhile, this delicious and comforting drink soothed my sore throat and helped clear my sinuses.  Truth be told, it also replaced my morning coffee!

Anyway, during this time, I decided that I really love the flavors of this tea!  The fresh squeezed lemon juice and the local honey added so much zing!  After  a time, I began to make and pour it over a tall glass of ice.  This quickly chilled my Honey Lemon Iced Tea.  And I love ice cold drinks!! 🙂

Honey Lemon Iced Tea is such a treat and doesn’t take much time.  Really, about the same amount of time as making a fresh cup of coffee!  So Delicious, quick and easy!  The freshly squeezed lemon juice and the delectable flavor of local honey give Honey Lemon Iced Tea a delicious flavor I think most of you will love as much as I do! honey lemon iced tea

Simply add boiling water to your favorite brand of tea bag; then let it sit and brew for a few minutes.  I like to dip the tea bag in and out of the water to brew it a little more quickly.  Once the tea is brewed, remove the bag and add the honey and the lemon juice and stir to combine.

Next fill a tall glass with ice and pour the Honey Lemon Iced Tea over the ice and stir to chill the tea quickly, and easily.

Additional ice can be added, if you would like!  I’ve written the recipe for one serving, but it’s easy to make it for more servings, if needed.

    1. Hi Bob! Great question! The answer is that the amount of juice in a lemon actually varies depending on it's size. It's been my experience to get anywhere between 2 and 4 tablespoons of juice per lemon. So, really, how much to use depends mostly upon a person's own preference. If you're like me, you may want in the neighborhood of 4 tablespoons of lemon juice in this yummy tea! Thanks for this great question! Have a great day! Lisa :)
