Tarragon & Lime Iced Tea

It’s been so hot in Chicago this week, the kind of weather that just calls of iced tea and lemonade. So… I made iced tea. Over and over and over again this week. This is one attempt, adapted from Shutterbean. I made it significantly stronger, and used black tea instead of green, and I really like how it came out. I’m not gonna lie, the tarragon gives it an interesting flavor, one that not everybody might appreciate. If the tarragon bothers you, leave it out; the rest of the ingredients make a refreshing, traditional iced tea.

Ingredients
  1. 10 tea bags (I used black tea)
  2. 1/4 cup honey
  3. 1 bunch of tarragon
  4. 8 cups of water
  5. 4 limes, halved
  6. ice
Instructions
  1. Bring 8 cups of water to a simmer. As soon as it starts simmering, take the pot off the flame and let it sit for about a minute. Add all ingredients (except ice) to the pot, and let it steep for about 10 minutes. Discard the tea bags, tarragon and limes and pour the tea in a caraffe. Refrigerate the tea until cold, and then serve over ice. Garnish with additional slices of lime, if desired.
