Sun Tea with Mint
Everyone knows mint goes well in Mojitos, the official drink of summer, so how about trying something new and brewing up some refreshing non-alcoholic Minty Sun Tea for the morning after?
- 1 large glass jar
- 1 lemon
- A handful of mint leaves (about 1/4 cup)
- 3 tea bags of your choice (green tea, chamomile, or black tea)
- 2 tbs Honey
Sterilize a glass jar with soap and water thoroughly. Slice a fresh lemon into slices and add to jar. Tear up mint leaves and add. Fill jar up to the top with water and add tea bags. Leave in sun to steep all day (about 6 hours). Strain out tea bags and leaves, and sweeten with honey according to your taste. Serve warm, or refrigerate and serve with ice cubes. You can use whatever tea you want, but a caffeinated tea is a safer bet against bacteria growing. The darker the tea, the stronger the flavour. If it’s too strong, you may want to dilute it with water.* To make this a true hang over remedy, add fresh slices of ginger, fresh peppermint and dilute with sparkling water.
