Crock-Pot Sweet Lemon Tea

Crock-Pot Sweet Lemon Tea is a delightful tea to have on hand for parties, summer days or when the family is under the weather.  It is incredibly easy to make and because you make it in the crock-pot it’s easier to have enough on hand for large groups, or to use throughout the day.  You can also cool it and add some ice for a nice ice tea.  I even purchased the reusable ice cubes so my tea wouldn’t be weakened by the ice.  My kids had so much fun with it, and of course loved using the cute ice cubes.  Keeping my children filled with enough snacks and drinks during the summer can break the bank, but this tea is very affordable and so much better then the artificial junk they typically drink.  I just start it up early in the morning, and by the time they are up and about it’s ready.  It’s been warm obviously, so we have been cooling it in the fridge and adding ice, but this works great during the school year too, when it’s cooler so we keep it warm.  It makes the house smell marvelous, which can be great for parties if you want a healthy fresh smell for your house.   I did another tea recipe a few weeks back http://crockpotladies.com/crockpot-mint-tea/  and that one tastes and smells great as well.   What is your favorite tea and how do you make it?

Crock-Pot Sweet Lemon Tea

Ingredients

10 Cups of Water
6 Chamomile Tea Bags
1 Lemon sliced thinly
1 Cup of Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed
2 Tablespoons of Honey
Sugar/Honey/Stevia/Agave Nectar to sweeten

Instructions

  1. I used a 6 quart crock-pot
  2. Pour the 10 cups of water into the crock on high and allow to warm up for two-three hours.
  3. Add the Chamomile tea bags and steep for 20 minutes.
  4. Remove bags, and either turn off or place on warm (whichever selection you have).
  5. Add the lemon juice, honey and sliced lemons.
  6. Once serving have each individual person sweeten with their typical sweetener by placing it into their tea cup or mug.
  7. If you do not have a warm selection on your crock, to serve for a long amount of time, you will want to periodically turn it off and on to keep it warm.

Notes

You could also do this with oranges or limes. I happened to have lemons on hand, so I went with the lemon.
