I was drinking some tea with honey last night and I was thinking about brewing into mead next week. Any advice from those that have tried? Or recipe?

I was planning on making tea with honey & adding yeast.

I can't seem to find it right now (!!) but I had a nice recipe for a kind of bare bones mead involving tea from a friend of mine currently out in south america with the peace corps. Bollocks on the lot of it!

At any rate, there are several recipes that involve black tea because it's ostensibly got tannins and other bits for the yeast to eat up. Pick something that doesn't rely on the tea exclusively (I feel like green tea must have less tannin) and it should come out wonderfully.
