Ginger Echinacea Lemonade/Iced Tea

Honey and Lemon Echinacea Iced Tea
  • 5 c. hot water
  • 1 tbsp. fresh lemon juice
  • ¼ c. honey, divided
  • 4 tea bags (I used Celestial Seasoning Perfect Trio- green, black, and white tea)
  • 12 drops Golden Echinacea (I used HerbPharm brand)
Put honey and water in stockpot. Bring to a rolling boil, then turn off heat. The minute the water stops boiling, add tea bags and stir. Let steep for 5-6 min.
Meanwhile, squeeze the juice of 1/2 lemon (or about 1 tbsp) when cool. Or make a simple lemonade by stirring honey, ½ c. water, and lemon juice.
Combine tea and lemonade, and refrigerate.  When cold, pour over ice and serve.
