Recipe from The View from Great Island

NOTE
Don’t add honey before tasting your tea — it’s incredibly sweet all by itself. You might want a squeeze of lemon if you don’t like sweet tea.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pluck the blossoms from the honeysuckle vine.
  2. Discard any leaves or green parts.
  3. Try to take the freshly opened flowers, and even the buds that are about to open.
  4. Put them in a pitcher or mason jar.
  5. Cover with about 2 1/2 cups water that has been heated to just boiling.
  6. Give it a good stir and let steep at room temperature for several hours.
  7. Then refrigerate overnight.
  8. Strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer, cheesecloth, or a coffee filter.
  9. The coffee filter will yield a crystal clear tea.
  10. Serve cold over ice with a mint sprig and a few blossoms for garnish.
