Honeysuckle Iced Tea
Honeysuckle Iced Tea ~ this sweet, floral, and refreshing drink made from honeysuckle blossoms is the perfect thing to sip on a warm summer day!
about 2 cups honeysuckle blossoms
fresh mint sprigs
a few honeysuckle blossoms
Pluck the blossoms from the honeysuckle vine. Discard any leaves or green parts. Try to take the freshly opened flowers, and even the buds that are about to open. Put them in a pitcher or mason jar.
Cover with about 2 1/2 cups water that has been heated to just boiling. Give it a good stir and let steep at room temperature for several hours. Then refrigerate overnight.
Strain the tea through a fine mesh strainer, cheesecloth, or a coffee filter. The coffee filter will yield a crystal clear tea.
Serve cold over ice with a mint sprig and a few blossoms for garnish.
