You know about iced tea, you may have tried cold brew, but have you ever heard of sun tea?
What exactly is sun tea, you ask?
Imagine a regular cup of tea, but with a touch of sunshine and a pinch of laziness that lights up your taste buds and refreshes your palate!
Sun tea is a magical creation that requires minimal effort and maximum relaxation.
Let's crack the code on how to make this sun-kissed delight.
Step one: find a jar or pitcher that's willing to take on the responsibility of brewing your tea. It should have a sense of adventure, like that time you decided to try bungee jumping (but with less potential for disaster).
Step two: grab your favourite tea (we recommend Tielka Breakfast or Limonada Rosa) and measure a generous amount into the jar. The more, the merrier! It's like a tea party in there, and everyone's invited. If you're a planner/list-maker and prefer specificity, add 10gm, or 5 teaspoons for a 1 litre jar. Fill up the jar with water, and here comes the tricky part: find a sunny spot. Yes, you heard me right. The sun is the secret ingredient here. Hopefully the weather is nice down your way.
Place your jar in the sun and let it steep to its heart's content. It's like giving your tea a vacation in the tropics. Don't forget to be patient, though. It's tempting to keep checking on it every five minutes like an overprotective tea parent, but resist the urge.
After a few hours (no more than four!) of sun-soaking, bring your jar of liquid sunshine inside and pour through a strainer to remove the leaves. Add some sweeteners if you're feeling fancy, and don't forget the ice! Voila! Your sun tea masterpiece is complete.
So, there you have it—a crash course in the whimsical world of sun tea. It's easy, it's fun, and it's guaranteed to make you feel like the king or queen of summer relaxation. Now, go forth and brew with the power of the sun on your side!
