That above there, is sun tea. What is that, you ask? Tea, steeped in cool water, set in the sun.
Yes. This is a favorite drink in the hot days of summer; of which-- are already beginning. It's easy. And fun. And lastly, delicious cool and refreshing. There isn't anything as enjoyable in the hot summer --or spring-- days as sitting on the porch with a tall, frosty glass of iced tea in your hand.
1 gallon jar
5 tea bags--per gallon
a gallon of water
Set it in the sun, someplace -- we put ours on the trampoline because the black mat attracts the sun, (Little science lesson, alright?)-- and wait for 2-4 hours. Then pour over ice, or cool in the refrigerator and drink your refreshing tea.
