- In a saucepan, combine water and honey. Simmer while stirring until the honey becomes very liquified. This step will infuse the honey with the herb’s essence, giving your tea a unique twist.
- Once the honey reaches a watery consistency, add the powdered hash, kief, or crumbled herb. The goal here is to let the herb’s oils dissolve into the honey, creating a flavorful infusion.
- Allow the mixture to simmer over medium-low heat while constantly stirring for about 15 minutes. This will ensure that the active ingredients from the herb are absorbed into the honey.
- When the majority of the active ingredient is absorbed into the honey, it’s time to strain the mixture. While cheesecloth works best, you can use any strainer you have on hand.
- Return the activated honey to the pan and allow it to condense back to the thickness of the honey you started with. This might take a little time, but it’s worth the wait for the rich, herb-infused honey.
- Once the herb-infused honey has cooled, simply mix 1-2 tablespoons of it into each glass of iced tea or add it to anything you’d normally sweeten with honey. One glass is usually enough to elevate your tea experience.
There you have it—a unique twist on a classic beverage! This Herbal Ice Tea infused with herb-infused honey is not only a delicious way to enjoy your favorite herb but also a refreshing way to cool down during hot summer days.
