Sun Tea Recipe
4-6 of your favorite tea bags
2 Quarts clean, cool alkaline water
Optional - fresh mint leaves to taste
Put 4 to 6 tea bags into a clean 2 quart glass container. Fill with water, preferably alkaline water, and cover with a lid. Place outside where the sunlight can strike the container for about 3 to 5 hours. Move the container if necessary to keep it in the sun. When the tea has reached its desired strength, remove from sun and put it in the refrigerator. You may or may not want to remove the tea bags at this point. I usually don't. You should refrigerate the tea and drink it up pretty quickly - a day or two. It will not keep as well as iced tea made from boiling water.
The secret ingredient in teas are catechins, which are a disease fighting flavonoid and antioxidant. Drinking sun tea has many health benefits and reduces the risk of heart disease and cancer.
