Iced tea with lavender and honey

The American dream includes a British habit, slightly tampered: tea in its coolest version. Today (June 10th) is dedicated to the refreshing pleasure of the iced tea -the result was an unusual abundance of recipes for delightful iced tea on the web. We chose one that combines our special love for the herbs, tea and thyme honey.

8 cups boiling water
6 Earl Grey tea bags
1 teaspoon dried lavender flowers
FoodsCross Premium Greek Honey with 60 or 80% thyme pollen grains
Lavender or mint sprigs, for garnish

In a very large heatproof measuring cup, infuse in 7 cups boiling water the tea bags and dried lavender flowers; let steep for 10 minutes. Strain the tea and let cool. Separately combine the honey (as much as you want) with the remaining 1 cup warm water (no more than 40oC) and stir well. Add the water with the honey to the tea and let cool. Serve the tea in tall ice-filled glasses, garnished with lavender or mint sprigs.
