Call this iced tea or sorrel-ade, itís an unusual way to quench a thirst. Surprisingly, little of the tartness of fresh sorrel comes through when you steep the leaves; instead they give a mild floral accent to the drink.
Place sorrel leaves in teapot. Pour boiling water over sorrel. Stir in honey. Let mixture cool to room temperature. Strain it into a small pitcher and chill in refrigerator.
To serve, stir in orange juice and pour over ice, into pretty glasses. Twist a lemon slice over each glass, to release a little juice into the drink, then add a lemon slice to each drink. Garnish each glass with a small sorrel leaf.
