Tupelo Honey Sweet Tea

Today I am combining two of my favorite things on the blog: tupelo honey from Savannah Bee Company and sweet tea. Savannah is the quintessential southern town, and this quaint honey shop has two locations on River Street and Broughton. On trips we visit the store once daily for a honey sampling, and last time were happily surprised to taste their Mead (honey wine). The whipped (white) honey is also a favorite, and is amazing drizzled on fresh fruit.
I like the Lipton cold brew tea for two reasons. It's easy and it's how Martha Foose makes sweet tea. You make the simple syrup by heating equal parts honey and water.

Tupelo Honey Sweet Tea

3 lipton cold brew tea bags
2 quarts water
Honey Simple Syrup (I used 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup water)

Infuse tea bags in cold water for 30 minutes, then remove. Add honey simple syrup to reach desired sweetness. Serve over ice with fresh mint and lemon slices.

Mixes well with bourbon or sweet tea vodka (so I hear...!)
