Sun Tea

Making sun tea is one of my favorite things to do on a warm sunny day. To make your own sun tea, place a few bags of tea to a jar full of water. We used decaf green tea.... yummmm! Add some lemon slices...


Place the sealed jars in a very sunny spot for.... well, pretty much all afternoon. Remove the tea bags and pour the remaining contents into a large glass pitcher. Add honey to taste. Grab yourself a tall frosty glass, pour the tea over a bunch of ice. Pull up a chair, and call it a day, my friends.


Sharing is optional.


...though highly encouraged.


While you're at it, have dinner outside.


....with ice cream for dessert.

I forgot about sun tea! We used to make that all the time as kids! I doubt my kids will drink it - perhaps if I use the raspberry herbal tea that I love.....

Hi April, I bet raspberry tea would be super-yummy! We have fresh mint in our yard, and I'm looking forward to trying that too. Mmmmm...

I used to practically live off sun tea growing up. Might have to make an herbal kind for the kids as I won't let them drink the caffeinated kind I always had.

That's a fun idea! Eating outside and ice-cream are fun too of course :)

Valerie said...

Thanks, sunnymama!

Ivy, I bet herbal tea would be delicious too. I think next time I'm going to try a caffeine free peach tea... Yummm!

That looks like a beautiful afternoon. :) I love suntea! It also works with herbs from the garden and stevia for sweetness.

And icecream! YUM!
