Summertime is SUN TEA Time

It's hot outside!  It's too hot for me to go out in the middle of the day... except to put out a pitcher so I can make some sun tea.

Sun tea is so easy!  Just fill up the pitcher with water, toss in some tea bags, cover it with plastic wrap, and put it out in the sun for at least 3 hours.  The ribbon is mostly for fun.

No electricity.  No heating up the house.

Here are a few tips:
  • If you like your tea sweet, add the sweetener after you bring it in while it's still warm.
  • Since the tea was not boiled, you should plan to refrigerate it and drink it up pretty quick.
  • The tea may not be as strong.  You can add more tea bags or leave the tea bags in longer.
My current favorite is Rooibos herbal tea.  That's what you see in the pitcher/picture!
