Strawberry mint sun tea 

Strawberry mint sun tea

Makes 6 servings

This refreshing summer beverage is also a great family activity. Watch as the sun brews your tea on a hot summer afternoon. This works best on a sunny day that is at least 25°C.


  • 6 cups (1.5 L) cold water
  • 4 herbal berry tea bags, caffeine free
  • 2 sprigs of mint leaves
  • 24 frozen strawberries
  • 24 ice cubes


  1. Place the cold water in a large clear glass pitcher or jar. Add the tea bags and the mint. Cover with a small towel, large enough to keep debris and bugs out. Place the tea in direct sunlight for 4 to 5 hours.
  2. Divide the strawberries and ice between six tall glasses.
  3. Discard the tea bags and mint. Pour the tea into the glasses and serve.
