Tea on a hot day

It’s been getting quite warm in the daytime – though at night it still drops to freezing – and so I’ve been making sun-tea.

I tried to grow a few things for tea last year but most didn’t take, so I put two decaf tea bags from the store into a glass milk bottle along with a few pinches of dried chocolate mint, which did grow nicely in the garden last summer and which I dehydrated in the fall. Placed in a sunny window or outside on the deck during the day, the water heats and the flavours blend … strain it and put it in the fridge and voila, you have a lovely refreshing beverage for the next warm afternoon.



  1. Sounds like a perfect break from digging up the quack grass. I should make some as well.

  2. I miss your blog...just hoping everything is ok.

  3. I'm still here! It's been raining for a week, I broke my nose, and well, just didn't have a lot to say ... but today I'm painting the chicken coop so perhaps I will write more tonight!

    Thanks for missing me, Sharon! You make me feel special! :)
