Summery Sun Tea!
Instead of turning on the stove and heating up the whole kitchen to make tea, why not let nature do it for you with sun tea? Steeping tea bags in water warmed by the sun will make you a tasty jug of tea, but without using gas or electricity.
To make, place 8 Foodtown Orange Pekoe tea bags per gallon of water into a large glass jug. Leave it outside in the sun for two to three hours, depending on how hot it is. If it’s a real scorcher, one hour may be enough.
Instead of simple black tea, you can also use a mix of different types of tea bags for your own blend. For example, an infusion of green, hibiscus, and peach teas will make a tasty, fruity combination.
After your tea has steeped, you can sweeten if you wish, and add citrus or herbs. Serve over ice and you’re done!
