Winter zest

This is my favorite winter drink, and it comes from my garden! Fresh orangequat tea with honey. The juice tastes like lemon, the rind gives a little tiny bite, and the honey mellows it perfectly. I eat the sweet/bitter rind when the drink is gone. The orangequat bush is loaded with fruit. I need to harvest them before they go beyond mature, freeze the juice and either dry or make marmalade from the rinds.
