Good morning Ozarker, and welcome. Yes, 148 is higher than you want. Honey can do that, but to understand this better, you would have to test yourself before you drink the tea with honey and then about
two hours later. That would show you how much your blood sugar rose. It would also show you what your fasting blood sugar was (from overnight before you eat or drink anything but water).
Many things can affect our blood sugar readings: food and drink, some medications, stress and illness, heredity. If there are any family members with diabetes, this would be an alert
to you to watch your blood sugar. I hope that your doctor includes blood sugar tests in your annual exams. If there are results that are anywhere over 100, you and the doctor would need to be more vigilant and test more often and having a meter at home is a good choice.
Sometimes if we eat late at night and have a lot of carbohydrates like potatoes or bread (any food made with flour like pasta or crackers or food made with sugar), we will find that our morning fasting numbers are high. This 'might' even happen with someone who does not have blood sugar problems.
In any case, since you have a meter, I think you should keep a record of your blood sugar with times, results and what you ate and drank. You would test before eating or drinking something, write the result down with the time, then write down what you eat or drink, then test about
two hours later.
Don't freak out or get upset. At this point, I think you can bring your readings lower just by adjusting what you're eating. And, as I wrote above, medications can also affect blood sugar. Do you take any? Do you have any family members with diabetes?
I'm glad you wrote so you can understand what's happening better!
