Waste Not Want Not Wednesday: Sun Tea
I've tried making it that way a few times but I couldn't seem to get the flavor right. No matter what I did to try and tweak it to my liking it just never worked and the tea ended up being discarded.
Does anyone have any uses for leftover tea? I wonder if it is good for watering the garden or something like that. Maybe I could have done something with those failed batches.
Today I saw some interesting tea while I was picking up some groceries (have I mentioned how excited I am that our CSA farm opens this week?) I spotted some tea I thought would taste yummy as sun tea. It is a warm day and I thought what the heck, let me try again.
This time I took a different approach. Who says sun tea must be made by the gallon with eight tea bags? I put my single Green Tea with Red Antioxidants in a quart Ball jar. It is delicious! And nothing went to waste. Yay, me!
