Simmer the honey with the tea, stir and remove foam. Cool to 90 degrees syphon to carboy add other ingredients and enough bottled water to fill to the "shoulder" level. Add your air lock and wait until the air lock is not doing anything much. (ie: weeks to months) rack to clean gallon jars with lids. Keep racking as sediment appears. I like to wait a year before passing judgement, but others are happy with results after 2-3 months.
