- 1 cup hot water
- 1 teaspoon loose black tea
- 2 oz whiskey
- 2 teaspoons honey
- 2 teaspoons lemon juice
- Lemon round and cinnamon stick for garnish (optional)
In a teapot or saucepan, bring the water to a simmer. Add 1 teaspoon of loose black tea to the hot water and let it steep for 3-5 minutes, allowing the tea to infuse the water with its robust flavor. Strain the tea leaves and pour the infused tea into a mug.
Add the whiskey, 2 teaspoons of honey, and 2 teaspoons of lemon juice to the brewed tea. Stir the mixture until the honey has completely dissolved into the hot, tea-infused water and the flavors are well combined.
Garnish the drink with a lemon round and a cinnamon stick if desired.
