I remember when I was little and the first time I brewed Sun Tea with my grandmother in our back yard. It was so hot that summer and we grandma showed me, we were just several hours away from drinking some delicious refreshing liquid sunshine.
I come from a family of tea drinkers. Ohhhh were not English, but we might have well had been. From a cocopahny of assorted tea in our cabinets we picked out all our favorite, mixed them up, and poured crisp spring water we collected from a local spring every Sunday after church over the tea. I watched the alchemical transformation of all those flavors from the colorful tea oils swirling in waves in the water. That was how it all began.
