This drink is an awesome way to still enjoy the flavors of different teas in the summer time. It is flavorful, crisp, light and refreshing. Not to mention, it is also a wonderful and healthy alternative to soda and sugar-filled beverages. —Jacquilyn in the Kitchen
ginger tea bags
chamomile tea bags
boiling hot water
(at least) ice cubes

Steep the tea bags in the boiling water for at least 10 minutes. After 10 minutes, gently press the tea bags and take them out of the liquid. Add the honey and stir well.
Pour the tea into a large pitcher that can hold more than 48 oz. Add the ice cubes and stir to cool down the tea. Next add the sparkling water and stir. If you desire, add the mint and/or basil leaves and stir. Taste and adjust. Maybe add a little more honey or fresh herbs!
