Relax Poolside With This Refreshing Honey & Orange Sweet Tea - Hey Honey Beauty

Hey Honey, after a long week of work nothing sounds better than lying out poolside with some shades on and an ice cold drink in hand! One of our summer go-tos is sweet tea–with practically unlimited variations there's a flavor sure to please everyone. While recipes range from a subtle hint of sweetness to immediate tooth-ache, we prefer ours right in the middle. That's what we love about this recipe from A Beautiful Mess (we're not complaining about the use of honey either!).

Honey & Orange Sweet Tea
Makes one large pitcher.


  • 64 ounces water (or about 2/3 full in a large pitcher)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 2 cold brew tea bags
  • 1 orange


  1. In the pitcher stir together the water, sugar and honey until dissolved.
  2. Add the tea bags and allow to brew for 3-4 minutes (check your package for directions as different brands may have different suggestions) then remove.
  3. Slice the orange very thin, removing any seeds. Then add the orange slices and enough ice to fill the pitcher.
  4. Serve cold and enjoy!

Stay cool, honey!
