I want to change this whole recipie but it is a good start. I think I would prefer it with sugar instead of honey. Honey isn't bad though. I also used nonfat milk that's all I drink except for in my coffee or hot tea. I should have figured it out but whole milk would be so much better or a little 1/2 and 1/2 with the nonfat milk. Next time I will keep it in the refrigerator and heat up a glass when I want hot tea. I think this recipie would be better as a hot tea than a cold tea. But still a good cold tea. Hope that made some since. Read More

I used my favorite Earl Grey tea to make this. It's super good and really does taste great on a hot day! Read More

This was surprisingly good and really refreshing! I cut the recipe in half just to give it a try and was glad I did. Not something I'd make often but overall a nice change of pace. Read More

I cut the honey by half. For me that was just right. This is lovely. I think this would be just as good with any tea you'd want to use. Next time I'll try this with chai tea bags. VERY refreshing. I liked this because I could make it early in the morning and have it set all day in the fridge and it would be ready for me when I got home after work and wanted something sweet but didn't want something high in calories.

I scaled this down to two servings since Hubs is not a tea drinker and this was just for me. I used just a basic Orange Pekoe tea and only half the honey called for and it was plenty sweet enough for me. I drank half of it while it was still hot and I really enjoyed it. In fact I prefered it to the remaining tea I had later after it had chilled! Read More

I thought this was very good. All I had on hand was flavored green tea bags so I used that and 1 cup of 2% milk (bc that's what I drink) and a little more than 1/2 cup half and half (to make up for the lost fat and creaminess of the 2%). I only occasionally drink coffee in the mornings but still want a little kick of caffeine. This is very light and will be a perfect iced drink that's already made to get me going. Especially living in a humid climate. Thanks!!!!! Read More
