Iced Sun Tea
The special part of the summer is the bright, smoldering hot sun that is present just about every single day. While it has the capabilities to cook an egg on the pavement, it can also make the best iced tea you have ever tasted. Growing up, my mother always placed a large glass jar outside filled with cold water and tea bags. She let it sit in the sun for about three hours, then placed it in the refrigerator. Even just plain black tea bags create an amazing, perfectly strong tea. Add mint leaves, lemons, peaches, mangoes, or any other fruit or herb after you brew the tea.
