Honey Mint Tea

This recipe has gotten me through many late-night writing sessions without any harmful side effects.  I keep a pitcher in the fridge when I think I’ll need a boost.

Per 64 fz (1814g) Pitcher:

50 fz (1417.5 g) Room temperature water
14 fz (396.5 g) Hot honey
Stir 24 fz (680 g) of the water slowly into the hot honey.
Transfer the cooled honey mixture into a refrigerator-safe pitcher.
Mix in the rest of the water into the pitcher, then chill in the cooler until ready to use.To serve:
Fill a tall glass half-way with ice.
Add one torn mint-leaf.
Pour honey mixture over ice and mint.
Stir to infuse, and enjoy.Per single glass:
6 fz (170 g)  Room temperature water
2 fz (56.5 g)  Hot honey
Slowly stir all water into the honey, then pour over ice and mint.

This tastes good hot on a cold night, too:
Use 8 fz (227 g) hot water instead of 6 fz (170g) room temp water, and omit the ice.
