Sun Tea Season!

With warmer weather and sun gracing the Midwest, I find myself in the mood for sun tea. Having said that, I must admit that I'm not a big fan of iced least not the Lipton bag kind. (Tho my Mom's sweet variety does taste pretty good at Sunday dinner.)

Today I made sun tea in the green variety - from my Hermes Orange green. It brews up to a lovely celadon color and tastes quite refreshing. Later this weekend I will give a new Blueberry tea (black) the chance to bask in the sun.

What I enjoy the most about sun tea is the sensory experience: watching the loose leaves dance up in the jar as it reflects the sunshine. Simple beauty at its best!
