Honey & Apricot… meet Camomile

Iced tea, preferably homemade, is such a delicious and healthy treat – especially during the summer. It’s just so refreshing and comforting to sit down with a tall glass… a really, really tall glass of iced tea and just simply do nothing.

Ingredients

5 apricots, seed removed, quartered
4 tbsp. granulated brown sugar or preferred sweetener
1250ml filtered water
1 tbsp. raw honey
5 camomile teabags
1 lemon, sliced and fresh mint for serving

Directions

In a medium saucepan combine the apricots, sugar and 250 ml (1 cup) of water. Cook on high heat, bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium and cook for about 10 minutes, until the apricots are tender.

Add the remaining water (1000 ml) and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove the pan from heat, add the honey and camomile tea and cover the pan with a plate (or lid).

Allow to steep for about an hour.

After an hour, strain the tea before pouring into your favourite glass jug. Cover, allow to cool to room temperature; then chill in the fridge for a few hours or until you are ready to serve.

Serve in a glass filled with ice and lemon slices.

You can store this tea up to two days in the fridge – we don’t think it will last that long though; it is delish!
