sun tea: directions

take a sunny day
mix 4 packets of fruit tea bags*
put in old olive jar**
add sprigs of rosemary and mint
shut lid
wait all day
retrieve in time for dinner
compost any used herbs and tea bags
drink hot or chilled with ice
sweeten if necessary***
keep refrigerated


*I use caffeine-free Celestial Seasonings fruit flavors like mixed berry, blueberry, lemon, etc.
** I recommend glass due to the scary nature of hot plastic
***agave syrup is a nice add for a sweet drink, though mostly we drink it plain

Yum!! I love saving my big jars for this, and the wide mouth ones definitely work better for getting all those compost-ables out of there at the end.
