Great taste, less waste

It is Friday and Fridays are for fun. Today I am going to share my recipe for iced tea. Yes you can make iced tea at home. It tastes better than store bought type ice tea, costs almost nothing to make and there are no empty plastic bottles to dispose of.

Fill a canning jar, with water, put in a tea bag or two. (I like to use quart sized jars)   Set the tea on a windowsill or outside in direct sunlight for at least 2 hours. I usually leave it out for four hours. I put a reusable lid on the jar.

Once the tea is done brewing, remove the tea bag. Pour the tea over ice and sweeten and add lemon if you like. For more tea use bigger containers and more tea bags. Clear glass containers work the best. The tea is nice and mellow, never bitter. It is low fat, has no cholesterol, calories or sodium and is gluten free and can be caffeine free but that seems wrong. Enjoy.
