Thai Iced Tea with Honey
Even though La Aurora is a lighter honey with fruits and florals, it holds up to substantial flavors like black tea because of its deep notes of cherry and heady daffodil. Drink it hot, or use it as an additional flavor, like in this delicious take on Thai iced tea. The light tannins and lemon flavors in Single Estate Ceylon are perfect for La Aurora 2019 honey, pairing nicely with the daffodil and tart fruit flavors. Though it is sweet (as Thai iced tea should be!), it is not weighed down with sugar—only flavorful honey that adds depth of flavor and intrigue.
¼ cup Ceylon loose leaf
1 cup boiling water
½ cup half and half
3 tbsp 2019 La Aurora honey
1 Tbsp boiling water
Pour the boiling water over the tea and let sit for 5 minutes. Strain and cool. In the meantime, mix the honey with the water in a small container. Once it is completely smooth, add the half and half and mix. Refrigerate until ready to pour.
To make the iced tea, add ice cubes to a tall glass. Pour half the cream mixture into the glass. Slowly, without disturbing the cream, add half of the tea into the glass. Serve with a straw.
