Honey Lemon Iced Tea is a delightful drink for anytime. This post is sponsored by Lipton.
On warm summer days when I was a child, my grandmother would pull the canister of iced tea mix from the cupboard and make pitchers of iced tea to drink with lunch or dinner. It was always there, always ready to use, always served in that cobalt blue pitcher she’d hunted all over for.
If we were home in New York, I’d open the bottom of the Dutch door in our kitchen (the top was already open), step out onto the rough concrete of our patio in my bare feet and skip out to the garden for some mint leaves. Mint was the secret ingredient my grandmother liked to add to her iced tea, with its pungent scent and cooling flavor.
