Honey apricot chamomile iced tea

honey apricot chamomile iced tea

Make summer better with this homemade iced tea!
Recipe makes 5 glasses of iced tea or approximately 1200 ml (2.5 pints) of tea.


  • 5 apricots, seed removed, quartered
  • 4 TBSPs granulated sugar
  • 1250ml (5 1/4 cups) filtered water
  • 1 TBSP honey
  • 3 TBSPs dried chamomile flowers
  • 1 large lemon, sliced; for serving


  1. In a medium saucepan combine the apricots, sugar and 250 ml (1 cup) of water. Cook on high heat, bring to a boil, then lower the heat to medium and cook for about 10 minutes, until the apricots are tender.
  2. Add the rest of the water (1000 ml or 4 1/4 cups) and bring to a boil. Once boiling, remove the pan from heat, add the honey and chamomiles and cover the pan with a plate (or lid).
  3. Let steep for about an hour.
  4. After an hour, strain the tea. It’s best if you first strain it in a wide measuring cup first and then pour it into a carafe or bottle.
  5. Cover, let cool to room temperature, then chill in the fridge for a few hours or until you are ready to serve.
  6. Serve in a glass filled with ice and lemon slices.


In our stores, the dried chamomile is found in the tea section next to other teas. If you can’t find this in your area, use tea bags instead. For this amount of liquid I would use between 4-5 tea bags (but make sure you check the recommendations on the package first).

This tea keeps for at least two days, covered and stored in the fridge. As we drink it pretty fast, I can’t say if it lasts any longer than that (but I think it’s safe for a few days).
