• 4-6 cups of black tea (I used British teas like this one)
  • 6 sprigs of lemon thyme

Prep Time

Recipe Description

I bought some lemon thyme (a lemony-tasting thyme plant as the name suggests) from Whole Foods a few months ago and it’s been flourishing in the garden despite the drought here.


And since it’s been so hot in California over the past few weeks, I thought some lemon thyme infused iced tea would help cool things down a bit.  And if you prefer a sweet-tasting iced tea, then try the plum infused tea recipe

Recipe Directions


  • Brew the black tea until ready.
  • Remove the tea bag(s) and add 2 sprigs of lemon thyme into the hot tea.
  • Let cool and then refrigerate overnight.
  • Remove the lemon thyme and serve with ice and fresh sprigs of lemon thyme for decoration.
