In a 16 ounce glass mix 12 ounces of iced tea with the juice of a half of a lemon (black tea works great, but you can experiment with herbals and flavored teas as well. Some of our favorites are made with Black Mango Tea or Ayurvedic Pitta Tea.) Warm 2 Tbs of honey and stir into tea/ lemon mix (10 seconds in the microwave works great). Pour mixture over ice and serve with a lemon wedge. Try a rock sugar rim for a sweet addition!
Tips for making iced tea: Brew your tea twice as strong if you are brewing it to be iced. For one serving of iced tea, use 2 TBS of loose-leaf tea to make your infusion. For a pitcher of iced-tea, use a half cup of loose-leaf tea.
