Our Favorite Honey Lemon Green Iced Tea

This is a recipe that I came up with because my son wanted to start drinking healthier drinks and stop drinking so much soda.  He is loving this one.  I like it too.

Honey Lemon Green Iced Tea
Makes 2 Quarts


6 tea bags - honey lemon green tea
1/4 cup lemon juice (fresh)
3/4 cup orange blossom honey
1/2 teaspoon candied ginger
2 quarts fresh water


Boil half of the water in a tea kettle.  Put the 6 tea bags into a two quart size container.  After the water boils, pour it into the container over the tea bags.  Let tea bags steep for at least 15 minutes to an hour.  Remove tea bags and let tea cool.  Once tea has cooled slightly, pour in honey and lemon.  Add the remaining water and refrigerate for several hours to cool.  Serve over ice and garnish with lemon wedge or slices.
