Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea Recipe

Lemon Thyme Infused Iced Tea Recipe

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 here.

Fresh Lemon Thyme

This is the lemon thyme plant – you can get them in most plant nurseries, or if you don’t have it, use regular thyme or another fresh herb.  Supposedly, lemon thyme is used to help with digestion, coughing, muscle spasms, as well as to help people relax.
