Lemon Sun Tea

Photograph by Shannon L. Buck copyright 2014

I hope you enjoyed the Peppermint Sun Tea recipe I posted last week. I found it tasted better after it had been in the refrigerator over night. It’s now time for a different version of sun tea. I hope you enjoy it.

This recipe  makes 1 quart of tea. Feel free to double or triple it.

Ingredients

2 tea bags (black, organic)

1 quart water

ice

lemon slices

  1. Place the 2 tea bags into a quart size canning jar, and pour water over them.
  2. Cover and set in a sunny spot outside for 1 hour.
  3. Refrigerate.
  4. When you are ready to drink the tea, fill a glass with ice and pour the tea into it. Add a slice or two of lemon.
  5. Just before drinking, squeeze the lemon juice into the tea.

Tips

  • Add honey to sweeten, if desired.

Grapes can be cut in half or used left whole, and small berries will not need to be cut at all. Use one piece of fruit or a combination of different types of fruit in each section. Freeze, then fill a glass with ice before adding liquid. Try these fruits: […]
