Sun Tea is a Healthy Alternative to Powdered Iced Tea

So simple, just plan ahead more than when mixing powder with water. But what is in that powder? And, do you really want that in your body?DSC_0008

You can see the process if using a clear glass container. Make it strong, especially if you plan on adding ice, so double the tea to water ratio that you would normally use when you make hot tea. I usually do this first thing in the morning and by noon it is done. Once the tea bags or loose tea has been removed you can drink as is or add a little honey and/or lemon to your taste, stir and enjoy a healthy alternative. Make a single glass or a pitcher full. Store any left overs in the refrigerator.
