When we were little we used to go out to our farmhouse in Stonewall, OK with our Aunt Leslie and cousins, Kate, Kellee, and Michael. We intelligently and appropriately named it, "THE FARM", which is also where my grandmother, Jo, grew up. Aunt Leslie used to set out a big glass jar on the crusty old sidewalk and call it 'sun tea'. What's the big deal? I don't know. It's very clear and it tastes...sunny? When I was little I thought it was some type of magical tea, but now I just know it's the sun that heats the water that steeps the tea. Duh. But I had a big imagination, so what?
Start by making this magical tea with a magical glass jar and two Lipton tea bags. I hate Cain's. That's why I recommend LIPTON! Actually just get a big glass thing. A vase. A fishbowl. Whatever, just make sure #1 it's clean, and #2 you took the fish out before you stick the bowl outside.
Viola! After two hours my tea was as black as my skin that same day I layed out. I wish.
Sorry for the fuzzy pics. Sometimes my camera gets lazy.
If you like lemons in your tea, cut one. But be warned...
Knives are sharp.
Okay, Okay, I milked it so I could take a dramatic pic. Whatver, don't judge me.
What better to drink on a hot day? ICED SUN TEA.
Thanks Aunt Leslie.
