Recipe: Refreshing Lemon Iced Tea

With this heat wave going through the UK, Jonas and I have been really enjoying these iced teas as a refreshing drink. I love the sweet yet strong taste of tea and the hint of lemon. It’s a great way of staying cool and hydrated during the hot summer days!  Try it out!

Recipe: Makes 2 glasses


2 black tea bags (I use English breakfast or Earl grey)

1 lemon

1 tbsp honey

cold water



1. Make hot tea- steep both tea bags in one cup. Add the honey while the tea is still warm and let it cool completely.

2. When the tea is completely cold – take 2 tall glasses and add ice to fill the glasses halfway. Add several wedges of lemon and the juice of 1/4 of a lemon into each glass. Split the cup of cold tea equally between the two glasses (1/2 cup per glass) and fill the rest up with cold water.

3. Mix thoroughly and serve with a wedge of lemon on the rim of the glass.


Hope you try this out and like this as much as we do!
