The lemon thyme in this recipe adds a great burst of citrusy flavor... Perfect for afternoon tea thyme!


1 cup water
1 green tea bag
2 teaspoons honey
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice
1-2 fresh lemon thyme sprigs
1 teaspoon white sugar, or to taste


Bring 1 cup water to a boil and pour into a mug with tea bags and lemon thyme sprigs. Let steep 10-12 minutes. The longer it steeps the stronger the flavor will be. Remove sprigs of lemon thyme and tea bags. Stir in lemon juice and honey, mixing until honey is dissolved. Add sugar to taste.
