Honey and Ginger Iced Tea

Jump to Recipe

Honey ginger iced tea is refreshing and so quick to make.

Isn’t a tall, cold glass of iced tea just sooo refreshing on a hot summer day?

Here at the Honey House, we think so! This Honey and Ginger Iced Tea is simple to brew and makes enough to quench the thirst of you and several friends and requires only a few ingredients. This is a perfect drink to make for a day spent on the beach or a night by the campfire.

Ginger is delicious and good for you. The root can help with digestive issues like nausea and indigestion that often come with overeating and motion sickness (which can be issues for you if you spend any time on the water during the summer months). Ginger is very pungent by itself, pairing it with our Eastern Shore Honey softens the flavors and sweetens up the brew.

If you have an herb garden, put your plants to work by including them in this recipe. Add your favorite lemon herbs such as lemon balm or lemon thyme to the tea, or garnish with fresh lemon basil to up the ante! For more ideas on what works well with ginger, visit Produce made Simple.
