Summer is near, the sun is here! So, we made sun tea! The students and staff, especially Mr. Jones LOVED our homemade sun tea. The best part, there’s only 4 ingredients; your favorite fruit or berry tea, apple juice, water, and the SUN of course.
Students helped make and consume this tasty summer treat. Check it out!
First you fill a gallon sized ball jar with cold water. (You can find these for sale individually at Michaels Craft Stores).
Then place 4 bags of your favorite flavor of tea in the jar (we used celestial seasonings tea).
We have tried 3 flavors so far! Wild Berry has been the biggest hit yet…
Place the jar in FULL sun for a few hours (we left ours out for the entire day)!
After the tea has steeped for a few hours, discard the tea bags. Using another jar or container, pour half of the tea into the other jar or container. Then add half of a 2 quart container of apple juice to each jar or container. Mix and serve! We added some lemon to ours as a garnish.
IT WAS A HIT! We will surely be adding this to our recipe book…
Come out to the farm and taste some of this sunny treat!
