Sun Tea (Kevin's Recipe)

Nothing beats a refreshing glass of iced tea after a day working outside in the garden. Here's my recipe:

Fill a clean pitcher (with a lid) almost all the way full with filtered cold water. Do not use hot water, as your water heater may have sediment at the bottom leaving a less than desirable taste.

Place 2 black tea bags and one Passion fruit tea bag into the pitcher leaving the tags hang out for easier removal.

Add sugar to taste. I like it sweet, so I put in at least 1 1/2 cups of sugar in the raw.

Add a pinch of baking soda and put the lid on the pitcher. This helps to rid the mixture of any bitterness.

Place in the direct sunlight for a minimum of 4 hours, and longer if you like the tea stronger. Remove the bags, fill a tall glass with ice add a mint leaf from the garden, fill and ENJOY!
