Lemon Honey Tea Base

Lemon Honey Remedy CU

I'm a tea person. My husband is a coffee person.
I never drink coffee, he never drinks tea and that
works out great for us.

I like lemon and honey in some of my teas.
I like milk and sugar in some.
I like some straight up.
I'm not a tea snob.

Give me a hot cup that's all I ask. I want that baby near the boiling point.
There is nothing worse than cold tea.
Ok there's lots of things worse than cold tea, but it doesn't make me happy.

I wandered upon a blog called A Little Life and found this
Lemon Honey Tea Base.

Lemon Honey Remedy

If there is anything that has "me" written all over it's this.
Two ingredients.
3 minutes to make.
A jar of lemony honey goodness in my fridge.
Add hot water and enjoy.

How do you prepare this golden amber concoction you ask? Well here's how Catherine from A Little Life first discovered it when her neighbor offered her some:

"She produced a glass container from the very back of her fridge and dug out a giant dollop of amber colored jam that she unceremoniously glopped into a cup. She poured boiling water over it, and handed me my mug. Wow, the most glorious thing I've ever tasted...it was fruity, and warming, and totally blissful. I was surprised to find it only contained two ingredients as well...sliced lemons and honey".

So if you are a tea lover like me, go grab yourself a few lemons and some honey. I used a local Rhode Island honey, but any honey will do.

Slice the lemons up and pack them into a jar.
Pour the honey over the lemons. Close jar. Refrigerate.
When you are feeling sniffly, or chilly, or just want a warm cup of goodness,
grab that jar out of the fridge and fill yourself up.
