It smells like the most delicious summertime Iced Tea you can imagine.
Lemon~Honeybush Iced Tea
This isn’t so much a recipe as a summertime lifestyle:
- Boil water & pour it over loose Honeybush each night.
- In the morning, strain & refrigerate.
Introduce this pattern & you’ll always have portable iced tea at the ready: for anyone who drops by; or to take with you to any social occasion where AIP-friendly party drinks might be difficult to find.
And of course, it is also excellent when enjoyed luxuriantly on a long summer evening, all by yourself.
