|Try the sun tea recipe for fruit flavored tea. The slow brewing of the sun greatly
enhances the fruit flavor.
- Sun Tea - Put one gallon of water in a glass
container, add 1/2 cup of tea to the water, stir. Place in sun for six hours. Strain
off tea leaves by pouring tea through a sieve into another container. Add 3/4 cup of
sugar or equivalent sugar substitute (more or less to taste), mix until sugar is dissolved.
Makes a clear brew with a great flavor!
- Hot - Put one quart of water in a sauce pan, bring water to a full
boil. Add 2 tablespoons of tea directly to pan, or use a large tea ball. Steep only 3
minutes. Strain off tea leaves by pouring tea through a sieve into container or remove tea
ball. Refrigerate until cold.
- Hint - Two tablespoons of tea per quart of water adds additional tea
flavor to stand up to ice. If you want even more flavor, add more tea, not
additional brewing time.
