      This is what I prefer now in the mornings instead of coffee or regular tea. So good for you and I just love the flavor too. Thanks! Made for Vegetarian Swap-May 2009.

      Don't pass this by because it's simple. Sometimes the simplest things are the best. This is one of them. It is definitely very lemony (but then, I use a whole lemon cos I love it) and the honey just takes the edge off. It is a really great metabolism shifter, and gets things moving if you know what I mean : )) I also love this when I am feeling a little unwell and have used it for years. Thanks Mersaydees, just love it.

      Nice lemony drink!!! I very much think this would be my favorite drink if I always had organic lemons on hand. I did use half a non-organic lemon but I want to make this again and I know it would taste better and be 100% better for me with an organic one. I tasted it without honey added and loved it but I added a little for it's heath benefit mainly and it was nice too. Made for Special Event ~ Adopt a Veggie Tag!
