Milk & Honey Iced Green Tea

Tea is one of my favorite drinks ever. Growing up in the South, I usually prefer sweet iced tea but green tea is a close second. One of the best things about green tea is all the ways it can be prepared. It pairs so well with all kinds of different fruits and is equally amazing whether it’s served hot or cold. With the weather starting to warm up and seasonal Spring allergies in full swing, there’s no better time to share my all-time favorite way to enjoy green tea.

The ingredients you’ll need are simple:

~Green Tea
~Honey
~Milk
Bigelow is definitely my favorite tea brand and it’s always best to use local honey if at all possible. The first step is to make the tea. I heat up 2 cups of water in the microwave for about 4 minutes. Boiling would be ideal, but there’s not always time for that. Then I transfer the water into a cup, add 2 green tea bags and let it steep with the lid on for about 5 minutes. I typically make this in small batches so it’s more fresh, but you could definitely make a larger amount if needed.
Once the tea is done steeping, I add in the honey while it’s still nice and hot to melt it all together. I think 2 heaping tablespoons of honey is perfect for this amount of tea. Local honey is supposed to help with seasonal allergies and this is a great way to add some into your diet. It’s also just slightly better than sugar, so you can feel good about indulging in something sweet.
With the honey added in, I put the lid back on and set it in the fridge to chill. Normally I make this in the morning to have as an afternoon treat, but you could also make it the night before. When all chilled and ready to enjoy, I add in some ice cubes and just a splash of milk. Since I already prepared it in a travel cup, it’s easy to grab quickly and go about my day.
Iced is definitely my favorite way to enjoy this drink, but this is just as delicious served hot if you’re battling a sore throat and want something more soothing and warm. This is one of the most simple drinks there is, which I am all about. When it comes to the kitchen, less is more -- at least for me, anyway.
