Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. *Early in the day*: fill a gallon jar with water, tea bags and honey; cover and place jar out in a sunny spot.
  2. Remove from outdoors, shake jug to be sure the honey is well-mixed; remove tea-bags (these can go in the compost).
  3. Place jar in fridge to chill (well, duh!).
  4. Serve over ice cubes or just chilled.
  5. VARIATIONS: If you're using unflavored tea bags, you can add a flavor by adding several (or fewer) drops of your favorite flavoring extracts to the finished tea: raspberry, orange, blackberry or a combination.
  6. MONEY-SAVING HINT: Leave the honey out and let everyone add their own sugar when they're served.

My husband and I love this especially in the summer. We don't like sweet tea so we leave the honey out.

Liked the honey, needed to be a bit stronger, so next time I will add a few more tea bags. Used this to go with "Honey Raspberry Iced Tea". Thank you for nice addition to my afternoon break!

Could not browse the recipe because the web site kept asking, over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over if it culd use my current location. Just how many "no's" does it take Food.com to get the point that I don't want my location accessed? Food.cpm goes on my "blocked forever" list. The recipes weren't all that good at any rate, so no great loss. I don't recall ver using one - There are plenty of better foodie sites that are NOT privacy hackers.
