I so loved this tea. It was quick and easy to make with ingredients that I always have in the pantry. So delicious, sweet, tart, tangy and spicy. I used a nice green tea, raw honey and meyer lemons. Into my favorites cookbook for 2011 this goes. Thanks so much for sharing with us Coasty.

Unfortunately I think I would only like this tea if I were not feeling well. Strangely enough, I was put off by the acidity of the lemon or maybe if I used less if would have tasted better (?). Or, perhaps a Meyer lemon would have worked better (?). Not horrible just didn't work for me. Sorry. Made for Exploring UAE and surrounding areas.

I've enjoyed this a several times over the last few days and will make it again. I did use Splenda for the sweetening. Lovely flavor and easy to make with things common to my kitchen.
