In a small saucepan combine the water, strawberries, and lime juice and bring to a boil. As soon as it starts boiling, reduce heat and simmer for 10-15 minutes. Then removed from heat and strain into your glass, pressing on the strawberries to extract maximum goodness. Let cool to cool to room temperature (at least 15 minutes).
Next add in the cold brewed green tea and stir in the honey. Add a handful of ice cubes, garnish with some strawberries and a lime wedge. All it takes is 5 minutes to make this refreshing and delicious strawberry iced tea!
