I’m Californian, born and raised, because we had a full day of sunshine it finally felt like summer
I’m also a mother and a grandmother (Lola) so making Sun Tea is an unwritten rule to making memories. Almost everyone that knows i also have a business with tea has asked me how do I make Sun Tea?
Honestly, I don't think one could live in California and not make Sun Tea, so as I share more about myself let me get this out and in the open with what I do to make Sun Tea.
First use a glass jar with a metal lid. The metal lid attracts heat from the sun. Filtered water is ok or natural spring water, whichever is easiest to get to.
Use tea bags or bag your own loose leaf tea. (order Tea from MooreTea.com),
measure the Tea and toss in the jar, fill the jar with water.
Allow 4-5 hours to pass for your tea to brew using direct Sunlight.
Now here’s the important part.
After your #tea has brewed place it in the fridge and any left over tea you don’t drink.
Do not allow left over Sun Tea to reach room temperature. This is when bacteria has time to grow. Keep your chilled tea for up to two days then make some More #MooreTea once it’s all gone.
Old Fashion Sun Tea
15 - 20 tsp. loose tea bagged
10 cups water or 2 1/2 quarts
1 Large 3qt. glass jar w/metal lid
4-5 hours direct sunlight
Optional but suggested
Use lemon, orange slices, berries and fresh mint.
To sweeten your tea Instead of sugar use 1/4 cup honey and 1/4 cup water, bring to boil, the. add this by stirring in after you brew for taste.
This tea will be milder and smoother than traditional made Ice Tea.
Remember don’t make more than you can drink in two days.
Do not store at room temperature, place your tea in the fridge to maintain freshness.
I hope you enjoy making your #SunTea
as much as you enjoy drinking Moore Tea.
May you have many more sun filled days.
