Recipe of Week 14: Herbal Sun Tea

Tea bags- around 2 per quart of water
Cool water
A container for brewing- a large ball jar or a pitcher with a lid works well
Honey/sugar (optional)
Lemon (optional)


Combine tea bags and water in your brewing container, and place in the sunlight for 3-5 hours. Using cold water makes the tea brew more slowly than tea made with hot water, which results in a milder flavor. 

Mix with your choice of sweetener and serve over ice with sprigs of mint and lemon wedges.

Keep your sun tea in the fridge when it's done brewing, and drink within a few days
