Directions

  1. *Early in the day*: fill a gallon jar with water, tea bags and honey; cover and place jar out in a sunny spot.
  2. Remove from outdoors, shake jug to be sure the honey is well-mixed; remove tea-bags (these can go in the compost).
  3. Place jar in fridge to chill (well, duh!).
  4. Serve over ice cubes or just chilled.
  5. VARIATIONS: If you're using unflavored tea bags, you can add a flavor by adding several (or fewer) drops of your favorite flavoring extracts to the finished tea: raspberry, orange, blackberry or a combination.
  6. MONEY-SAVING HINT: Leave the honey out and let everyone add their own sugar when they're served.
