I’m still finding ways to use these tea bags. This is a good tea to enjoy on the patio in the evenings. Chamomile tea is said to aid in relaxation, and I like to enjoy a cup at night.

NOTE: I placed the pitcher at the center of my patio table to brew. When I brought the pitcher back into the house, the tea was still as cool as the water was when I brought it out.

Ingredients

4 green tea bags (decaffeinated)

5 chamomile tea bags

1 gallon water

  1. Place the tea bags in a gallon size pitcher.
  2. Fill the pitcher with cold water and cover.
  3. Set it outside in a sunny spot for 1 hour.
  4. Bring in and place in the refrigerator.
  5. Whenever you want a glass, fill one with ice and pour the tea over it. The tea can be used as soon as it is brought in.

 

Tips

  • Use store brand tea bags to save money.
  • Use a clear glass jar.
  • Mix up the flavors using different types of tea bags.
  • Add sugar if desired. Start with 2/3 cup. Eventually, by using a little less each time making the tea, you should be able to cut down to little or no sugar.
  • You can use decaffeinated tea bags for this recipe.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve over ice with a lemon slice.
