Honeysuckle Iced Tea by Gina M. Brown

Edible Flowers Challenge.

My dog and I love to sit in our bay window where a honeysuckle vine brushes up against the screen. When we're lucky, a hummingbird comes and drinks from the flowers and, as a thank you, makes cute little "meep meep" noises. So, we got to thinking about the nectar and it seems that you can actually make iced tea from the flowers! Just be careful - the internet is full of cautions about using ONLY the flowers and verifying that no pesticides were used. Also, when possible, confirm that the variety is safe for consumption.
