Summer is upon us! And thankfully...this year.....there is some summer! To celebrate this lush, hot, and "play outside" weather I am making a drink that will be our staple all summer. Sunny Day Tea! We love this tea over ice and with a lemon wedge! The best part....we can play while the sun does all the work. That is MY kind of summer!!!
What you need:
2 - 3 Litres of COLD water
1/2 cup lemon juice
3/4 cup of sugar
Lemons for garnish.
It all begins with a big jar, or use a glass pitcher. (just make sure you can cover it) Fill with COLD water. This makes the tea not bitter as it brews.
Add 10 teabags. I love Tetley Orange Pekoe.
Place in direct sunlight. And leave it for about 4 hours. Longer is okay too.
Remove teabags, add sugar and lemon juice and serve over ice! Refridgerate and drink when thirsty!
Oh look, I didn't lift a finger and I have home made Ice tea! All I did was lounge in a chair, read a book and get sunburned!
