Nothing say summer more than sun tea. It is super easy to make and rather fun, especially if you are a kid (or are a kid at heart). I love adding fruit to mine. It adds extra pizzazz and a unique flavor. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

Fruity Sun Tea

  • 5 Lipton tea bags
  • 2 peach flavored herbal tea
  • 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 8 fresh raspberries
  • Sugar to taste

In a 1 1/2 gallon pitcher, add water, tea bags, and lemon slices. Set out in the sun for 8 hours. Time will vary depending on how strong you like your tea. I prefer mine out all day. You may have to move the pitcher as the sun moves. When you reach desired strength, break the raspberries into small pieces. Stir in the berries and the sugar. Serve over ice.

Be sure to drink this tea quickly. It does not keep as long as regular ice tea.
