Does anyone else make Sun Tea? I made some last week and I added Hibiscus flowers because I have HBP and they help lower it. The tea was so good I am making some more this morning and this time I added a cinnamon stick with the flowers.
I love sun tea. We make ours strong and it’s delicious. My favorite is apple cinnamon. I will have to try the hibiscus tea
I’ve been wanting to make sun tea for a while now but I can’t find a glass container large enough and it’s been rainy here in Alabama lately
@crystal24 that sounds delicious
You can make it in quart size mason jars or anything else you have. Once it’s done you can just pour it over to a bigger plastic jug.
@crystal24 I didn’t even think about that. Thank you . I’ll have to try that on our next pretty day
were you using standard tea and then adding the other items or was it purely an herbal brew? As you can see wheels are turning LOL.
I personally like mine with standard tea. I just add things in to enhance.
I used regular black tea and added the flowers and cinnamon. It was really tasty.
I love Sun Tea! My personal favorite is green tea with a bit of local honey- a really tasty (and healthy!) summer drink
I’m a big fan of the Herbal Academy, and I know they have some fun Sun Tea recipes if anyone is on the hunt for more blends to try:
From the Herbal Academy
I’m a huge of the Herbal Academy too! I receive their daily emails. There’s so much valuable information!
Cheers to that! I love the recipes on their blog, and as Green Witch I super appreciate how they all come with bits of wisdom about different herbs and how to use them
Although I admit that reading through their content usually makes me hungry!
I love it alll6 and I too get hungry looking at all the recipes and ingredients. Mmm. Oh yeah speaking of recipes, I’m making the coconut latte that @Amethyst shared with us the other day. I’m definitely posting pics!!! Just waiting for the coconut to ripen. Any day now.
I hope you enjoy it! I’m just not sure if there’s a difference between fresh coconut milk and canned. You may want to taste.
I don’t know the difference all I know is that I’ve never had fresh coconut that’s sad because I love tropical fruits!!!
Coconuts have mostly water in them, I think? To get coconut milk it’s processed with the meat of the nut. I think. Maybe someone else knows more.
Right on! Coconut milk (like the kind that can be bought in cans and cartons in the store) is made from the flesh of the fruit . You can make the same stuff at home with a fresh coconut by grating the fruit into a pulp- let me warn you though, we did it at cooking school in Thailand and it takes a lot longer than you’d think!
Coconut water, though, is easy peasy- it’s just the water resting in the coconut. You can buy it in stores or can crack open a coconut and enjoy! It makes a tasty addition to drinks, although I don’t know if it’s something that would mix well with tea
I guess if anyone comes across coconut teas (sun tea or otherwise)- I’d love to hear about your finds!
Oh, I will have to try this! I have never had a Sun Tea & I know that it has to have been mentioned before… but this time I am going to bookmark the Herbal Academy. Thank you for sharing @TheTravelWitch
@phoenix_dawn I get lost in that rabbit hole more often than I care to admit. Thank you for the Iced Tea recipes. I know that I like that!
