No summer can be complete without an afternoon of ice-cold sun tea! Have you had one already? My take on it is pretty straight forward: Japanese green tea, sliced lime, lemon and a bunch of fresh mint leaves all chucked into a jar with cold water. On a good day it takes about 3 to 4 hours to get ready but it’s worth the wait. We usually top it off with ice cubes and sweeten it with honey! Btw: Each time I make this combo I feel like a little scientist who keeps on cheekily peeking into the window and checking the progress of brewing. Bliss!
Psst: Here is the how to if you fancy trying it!
Pour 3 glasses (or 1 liter) of water in a jar/pitcher. Next, add 3 teaspoons of green tea, 1 sliced lime, half sliced lemon and a bunch of fresh mint leaves into the water. Seal the jar. Place the jar for about 3-4 hours on a sun-filled windowsill or outside in your garden during the hottest part of the day. After the brewing process is completed, sieve through the tea. Let it chill for a bit in a fridge or drink it with ice cubes and a bit of honey right away. Ta dah!
