    Serves: 16



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 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. 2
      Remove from outdoors, shake jug to be sure the honey is well-mixed; remove tea-bags (these can go in the compost).
    3. 3
      Place jar in fridge to chill (well, duh!).
    4. 4
      Serve over ice cubes or just chilled.
    5. 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. 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.

      Added 1/4 tsp baking soda (seems to take away some of the bitterness) and some lemon juice and lemon slices. Easy and fun to make.

      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!
