Easy Sun Tea for One

I’ve wanted a mason jar glass with a cover and straw for some time now, and finally picked one up at Renny’s during a trip to the coast with the bestest. The trip was a blast, and I came home with a few things for my kitchen. This always makes me happy 🙂

Once I got it home and washed real well, it sat on my counter until I had a day off to make some sun tea. I placed the plastic straw it came with in the donatables box, replacing it with a stainless steel one I already had and, on my next day off I put a little filtered water in the bottom of the cup along with a mint tea bag and let it sit in the sun for a couple of hours while I went to Aroma Joe’s for breakfast and to do some writing.

When I arrived home, this is what I had:

Tea concentrate.

I added ice, and then filled the jar with more water before covering. What a refreshing drink!

From the mint tea bag, I was able to get two iced teas. But the chamomile tea bag I used today only gave one. I guess it will depend on the tea.

The perfect iced tea method for one.

Enjoy your day!
