This month we at Red Bee are launching a new collection of botanical herbal teas to bring attention the the plight of the honeybee. You are already familiar with our collections of honey by floral source and both require honeybee pollination to thrive. Honeybees pollinate roughly 1/3rd of the food we eat including ornamental flowers and herbs. The taste is as complex as any of our honeys and compliments them well simply as a hot or cool tea and even a decadent cocktail.
The Red Bee TEA & Honey Cocktail
(our interpretation of the classic Arnold Palmer)
Make the iced tea in advance by heating water to below boiling
water at approximately 180-190 degrees F.
For every 8 oz. of water, heap 1 teaspoon of our signature
Bee's Bouquet organic tea blend into a tea strainer.
Steep for 3-4 minutes.
To make the cocktail:
Equal parts organic lemonade and <Bee's Bouquet tea>
Splash of organic blueberry vodka
Plenty of ice
Top with a sprig of fresh mint
