Iced Green Tea with Wildflower Honey
From Tea: Essence of the Leaf by Sara Slavin and Karl Petzke, (Chronicle Books, 1998)
Adapted by StarChefs

Yield: 4 Servings

  • 2 Tablespoons green lea leaves
  • 5 cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons wildflower honey, or to taste
Dissolve honey in a few Tablespoons of warm water.

Place tea leaves in a teapot. Bring water to a boil. Pour water over tea leaves and steep 5 minutes. Strain leaves from tea. Allow tea to cool to room temperature before pouring over ice. Stir in desired amount of liquid honey to sweeten tea.

Packing tips:
Place tea in a shatterproof container such as a plastic jug or insulated bottle/thermos. Chill in the refrigerator until it is time to pack for the picnic. (Freezing the tea also works because it stays very cold as it melts.) Place container at the bottom of the cooler where it is the coldest.
