I will admit it. I have a BAD Starbucks habit. Any time I take my kids somewhere (gymnastics, play date, supermarket, really anywhere), I “reward” myself with Starbucks. This tea has changed me. Now I look forward to coming home to this refreshing tea. The infusion of fresh nectarines makes this Summery drink extra special. Add a little agave nectar and this drink is perfectly refreshing.
You can purchase a container specifically made for sun tea, but any large drink dispenser will do. I received mine as a wedding gift and it works perfectly.
Here is your printable!
- 2 pomegranate iced tea sized tea bags (or 4-6 regular tea bags)
- 2 nectarines, sliced
- Agave nectar to taste
- Add tea bags to empty drink dispenser. Fill with cold water and top with sliced nectarines. Cover with lid and set outside in a sunny spot for at least 4 hours. You may have to increase the time to 6 hours, depending on the temperature outside. You will know it's done when the tea is dark brown. Remove tea bags and refrigerate.
- ** I prefer to sweeten my tea by the glass as some of my guests prefer an unsweetened iced tea. If you want to sweeten the whole batch, pour agave nectar or simple syrup in the bottom of the container before adding any other ingredients. **
Now pour yourself a cold glass of sun tea, turn on Netflix, and enjoy the cool calming comfort of a job well done!
