Plum + Thyme Iced Tea

This is the definition of summer in a glass!  No other words can describe it.  Enjoy!

Plum and Thyme Iced Tea
(From Real Simple)
Yield: 4 Servings

2 Tea Bags (black or herbal)
2 Tbsp. Honey
2 Plums, sliced
8 Sprigs of Fresh Thyme

Heat 3 cups of water over the stove or in the microwave and bring to a boil.  Remove from heat, add tea bags, let steep for 10 minutes.  Remove the tea bags and allow the tea to cool to room temperature.  Next, stir in the honey, plums and thyme.  Transfer to a glass pitcher and refrigerate until cool (about 1 hour).  Serve over ice.

Make it an adult version: Stir in 1/2 C. bourbon or iced tea flavored vodka into the pitcher before serving!
