Flavoring Sun Tea with Herbs
by Monica Resinger
Sun tea is very easy to make and is a nice thing to do on a sunny day. It
also tastes great and sipping it at the end of a hard day is a great way to
relax. If you're having company over, it's a great summer beverage to serve.
you flavor sun tea with herbs, you really have something special.
To make herb flavored sun tea, you'll need a covered glass beverage
container, water, six or seven teabags, and 3 or 4 washed, fresh herb sprigs or
depending on your taste.
For herbs, try mint, lavender, lemon balm, sage or any type of herb that
sounds appealing. If you don't have access to fresh herbs, you can add an
teabag or two depending on your taste. Most retail stores have containers made
especially for iced tea.
Fill the container with cold tap water and add the tea bags and herb sprigs
or herbal teabags. Put the lid on and set in a sunny, protected area. I put
mine in an out of the way, sunny area of our deck. The warmth of the sun will
gradually heat the water and the tea will begin brewing. Now all you have to do
is wait until the tea gets as strong as you like. I usually let mine sit out in
the sun almost all day.
When your tea is as strong as you like, bring it inside and take the teabags
and herbs out, squeezing them to release any flavors back into the tea.
Sweeten with honey or sugar and add a bit of lemon juice or a few lemon slices
you wish. Set the container of tea in the refrigerator and chill until very
cold. Serve over ice and enjoy!
