Homemade Iced Honey Lemon Tea

Ingredients

2 tablespoon black tea

500 ml hot water, boiled but not boiling

5 tablespoon honey

3 lemon slices or juice squeezed from 1/2 a lemon

ice, as you like 

  1. Leach the black tea in hot water for 2 minutes before straining the tea leaves. Leave the tea to cool for 15 minutes.
  2. Add enough honey to sweeten, you may add more as the sour of the lemon slices will mask the sweetness.
  3. Add the lemon slices, and use a spoon to press the lemon juice. Give the drink a stir before drinking.
  4. Although it’s lemon tea, but I am using only 3 slices of lemon. Why? Natural honey has a slight sour aftertaste and we really do not want our drink to go way too sour.¬†
  5. If you prefer it sweeter, add a tablespoon of syrup.
