Herbal Sun Tea
In the south, we love our sweet tea, but with all of the sugar that it takes to make it as delicious we like it, we are risking many blood disorders and diseases.
I’m sure you’ve heard of sun tea. You just put tea bags in a pitcher with water and keep it outside in the sun to brew. It has a different taste than stove-brewed tea.
Here’s some ideas to make your sun tea tasty and sweet that will keep you hydrated and satisfied with out all of that sugar.
Natural sugars are much healthier than artificial, so fruits are perfect to flavor tea. You have the classics like Peach, Lemon, and Raspberry. You can also do blueberry, strawberry, or whatever you like. A good way to do this is to freeze a cup of the fruit you are using (sliced) and put it in the pitcher when it’s time to brew. This will make it nice and cool and tasty. If it’s not sweet enough for you, freeze the fruit with sugar sprinkled a top and put that into the tea. It’s still a little less.
Even better than using fruit, is using herbs. Herbs like Chamomile, mint, Lavender, etc. are very healthy for you and can be very tasty. You could also add a sprig of herb to your fruit sun tea. This will give it a nice taste to replace the sugar that we in the south love so much.
Keep yourself hydrated with interesting combinations! Find your signature and experiment this summer and feel good.
