Honey Lemon Tea using fresh from the hive honey

Remember my fresh fish article?  See https://eurasianepicurean.wordpress.com/2010/12/14/freshmackerel/ if not.  Like I mentioned there, there’s no fish like freshly caught fish.  And theres certainly no honey like freshly harvested honey from a hive.  Today we received a package from Japan from one of my aunts (my mom’s sister-in-law) and one of the many items in the package was freshly harvested honey straight from the hive to the jar!  Very sweet and very fragrant.  So I decided to use it to make some honey lemon tea.  Here are some images:

Emily actually got me into making Honey Lemon Tea as a cold and cough remedy (after much persuasion on her part, haha).  Its a good remedy though, very soothing and naturally sweet without any added sugar.  Its also good even when you’re not sick, especially on cold days.  Boil water, pour over a tea bag (I used YAMAMOTOYAMA® brand green tea; bought a package of 15 bags for $1.50), drizzle two “honey drippers”-worth (the wooden thing used to pour honey) of honey into the tea, and add a squeeze of lemon juice.  I added a slice of lemon for a nice extra and a bit more residual lemon juice.  And yes, like I said, there’s no honey quite like fresh honey.

Bon appetit!
