- 4 cups water
- 4 black tea bags
- 1/3 cup Double Barrel Honey
- 1 lemon, sliced
- Fresh mint leaves for garnish
- Ice cubes
Brew the Tea:
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. Remove the water from heat and add the black tea bags. Let the tea steep for about 5-7 minutes, depending on your desired strength.
Sweeten with Double Barrel Honey:
While the tea is still warm, add 1/3 cup of Double Barrel Honey to the tea. Stir well until the honey is completely dissolved. Adjust the sweetness to your liking.
Cool the Tea:
Allow the sweetened tea to cool to room temperature. You can expedite the process by placing it in the refrigerator for a quicker cool-down.
Prepare Lemon Slices:
Slice the lemon into thin rounds. You can adjust the amount of lemon slices based on your preference for citrus flavor.
Assemble the Drink:
Fill glasses with ice cubes. Pour the cooled sweetened tea over the ice in each glass.
Drop a couple of lemon slices into each glass. Stir gently to incorporate the lemon flavor.
Add Mint Leaves:
Garnish the iced tea with fresh mint leaves. You can either stir them in or use them as a decorative touch.
Serve and Enjoy:
Serve the Bourbon Honey Iced Tea immediately. Sip, relax, and enjoy the delightful combination of bourbon-infused honey, tea, and citrus.
