Strawberry Jasmine Sun Tea

Store tea in the fridge when not in use; after two days discard the leftovers. Since all the water is not boiled in this method, it won't be good to drink after a day or two. This is a good way to make a lot of beverage for get-togethers.

My mother uses this method and adds gooseberries to her boiling strawberry water.

Its very thunderstormy here in the midwest so sun tea is out of the question today, but when I do make it next time, I'll post the real picture :)

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This tea is super refreshing and great for a hot summer day. I never had jasmine tea before, but I loved the flavor and light taste. No extra sugar is needed for this thanks to the sweetness from the honey and mint. But if you like your tea very sweet, you can add sugar when serving. Great for your summer cookout!

Ingredients

3 gal
water
1 pt
strawberries
bunch

5

3In the meantime, wash thoroughly the beverage container you will be leaving out in the sun.

4Pour everything, strawberries and all, into the clear beverage dispenser (glass is best to use, I think). Add the rest of the water (room temp), and the jasmine tea bags.
