  • Large stockpot
  • bucket
  • bottles


  • 2 Gallons of water
  • 3 whole lemons
  • 3-1/2 lbs Honey
  • 1 packet of White Wine Yeast
  • 25 packets of any dark tea
  • 2 large cinnamon sticks
  • 2-1/2 lbs. Fresh blackberries


  • Begin by bringing 2 gallons of water to a boil in a large stockpot on the stovetop. When the water boils, add 3 whole lemons and 25 packets of any dark tea. Let this mixture simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • When the 10 minutes are up, remove from heat and let cool for 20 minutes. Once cooled, strain the mixture into a cleaned and sanitized 5-gallon fermenting bucket. Next, add 3 1/2 lbs of honey to the bucket and stir until fully dissolved.
  • Now add 2 large cinnamon sticks, 2 1/2 lbs of fresh blackberries, and 1 packet of white wine yeast. Stir everything together until fully mixed.
  • Cover the bucket with a lid or airlock and let it ferment for 2-4 weeks in a cool, dark place. Make sure to check the fermentation process every few days to make sure everything is going as planned.
  • After two weeks, your mead should be ready for bottling! Transfer the mead to sanitized bottles and cork them tightly. Let the age of the bottle be in a cool, dark place for at least one month before drinking. The longer you let your mead age, the smoother and more flavorful it will be!



  • Make sure all of your ingredients are fresh and of the highest quality.
  • Be diligent with the fermentation process, checking it every few days to ensure it is going as planned.
  • Use a sanitized hydrometer to check the specific gravity before bottling. If the reading is below 1.000, the mead is ready to bottle.
  • Let your mead age at least one month before drinking for optimal flavor.
