WATCH: This Iced Tea Recipe Is All You Need This Summer

Nothing beats real honey and fresh lemon and calamansi juices!

Sure, it's easy to reach for iced tea powders but making iced tea is really easy! We used real honey and fresh lemon and calamansi juices to make this freshly brewed iced tea recipe irresistibly refreshing and delicious. You can tweak the amount of honey so it's perfectly sweetened to your taste but if honey isn't available, you can easily switch to sugar. (Brown sugar would be delicious in this iced tea recipe!) 

It's the lemons and calamansi that make this summer iced tea recipe a truly refreshing and citrus-infused drink.
