Tea Time

Whether you’re planning a barbecue
Or catching sunrays down by the pool,
Grab your favorite sun teas to brew
Whipping up a batch helps keep you cool.

Freshly Brewed

Before summers over don’t forget to brew up a fresh batch of sun tea. Not only delicious but also mother earth approved, sun tea takes little to no energy (or effort) to make and is filled with healthy antioxidants.

Sun-Kissed Tea Recipe:

  • Take a clear one-gallon glass jar and fill it to the top with water. The glass allows the sun to get in and doesn’t leave a strange taste or smell like plastic can.
  • Drop in 16 bags of your favorite flavor tea (black works well if your not sure) to make a gallon of tea. Remember you can always split this recipe in half if it seems like too much.
  • Find a sunny spot in the yard and let the tea soak up some sun. After about three hours remove the bags and pour over ice for a cool summer treat.
  • Don’t forget to refrigerate and enjoy within a few days!
