Classic Iced Tea

6 black tea bags
8 cups hot water
1 lemon, zested and sliced
¼ honey (optional)
1 cup hot water (optional)
ice

Using a vegetable peeler, peel the zest of one lemon being careful not to get the white rind which is quite bitter.
Add the lemon zest and tea bags to hot water and stir.
Allow the tea to steep for 5 minutes.
Remove the tea bags and the zest and allow the tea to cool
completely.
For sweetened iced tea, add hot water to honey and stir until the honey is completely dissolved. Allow the mixture to cool completely.
In a pitcher combine ice and lemon slices.
Add tea and honey mixture and stir thoroughly.

Raspberry Peach Iced Tea
6 tea bags (I used rooibos)
8 cups hot water
¼ honey (optional)
1 cup hot water (optional)
4 ripe peaches, sliced
1 cup fresh raspberries
ice

Add tea bags to hot water and stir.
Allow the tea to steep for 5 minutes.
Remove the tea bags and allow the tea to cool completely.
For sweetened iced tea, add hot water to honey and stir until the honey is completely dissolved. Allow the mixture to cool completely.
In a pitcher combine ice, peach slices and raspberries.

For best results, allow tea to infuse with flavor for 1-2 hours before
serving.
