Directions:

Boil 8 cups of water. Add boiling water to a heat safe pitcher and add tea bags and the zest of one organic lemon. (Tip: use a vegetable peeler to zest your lemon. The large pieces make it easier to remove after the tea has steeped.) Steep tea for 6-8 minutes depending on how strong you like your tea. After it has steeped, remove tea bags and lemon zest with a slotted spoon. Let tea cool to room temperature. In the meantime make your sweetened syrup. In a heat proof measuring cup combine honey with 1 cup boiling water. Stir to dissolve. Let cool. Once tea and sweetener are cooled fill a large pitcher with ice . Pour tea and sweetened syrup into the pitcher and stir with a wooden spoon. Serve with a little sliced lemon and enjoy!
