It's never too hot for tea!
I love making sun tea on warm, sunny days. Then I can kick back, enjoy a book while I lounge on the chaise. Perfection!
Have you ever made it? If not, it's easy:
Put 8 tea bags (strong English breakfast or any flavor you like, regular or decaf) into a clean gallon glass container or pitcher (but you need a lid). Fill with water and secure the lid. Place outside in full sun for 3-4 hours. That's it!
Discard the tea bags. Serve sun tea over ice, add sweetener if you're inclined, and enjoy. (Sometimes when I'm outside, I reach over and pluck a sprig of peppermint that grows right next to the chaise lounges, and I add it for flavor. Lovely.)
Drink up quickly or refrigerate, though. The taste changes if tea sits out on the counter too long (in my opinion, anyway).
Enjoy your summer reading and tea!
