Sweet Tea

 

 

I’m a big fan of sun brewed tea. Put tea bags into a large glass container, fill with water and set it in the sun (on your kitchen counter is fine). Within a few hours you will have steeped yourself some lovely tea. Meanwhile make simple syrup:

Combine a cup of sugar and 1/2 cup of water in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir until all sugar has dissolved. Set aside to cool. I tend to sweeten the whole quart, but you could pour your syrup into one of those glass pitchers made for maple syrup, and let everyone sweeten their own. You can also flavor our syrup with lemon zest or a handful of frozen raspberries. I might even suggest making huckleberry tea. But everyone knows I think huckleberries are life changingly delicious.
