Apocalypse Sweet Sun Tea
This recipe actually could be easily made during an apocalypse. While it does say you should refrigerate if a refrigerator is available, it’s really not necessary.
I started on the tea yesterday morning, actually. The first step was putting tea bags in water and letting it sit outside in the sun for several hours, so I left it outside all day while I was at work.
Then, once I got home, I stirred in the honey and stored it in the fridge overnight.
Finally, this evening when I got home, I just added some ice and mint to finish up the drink.
My husband thought it was really, really good. I thought it was pretty good, but that it was a little bit too strong. The honey was very nice, though!
I thought the tea was a bit “over-steeped,” but it was likely because I left the tea bags in for too long. The honey was a very nice addition though – my husband said it was “just the right amount” of honey.
The mint, honestly, didn’t add anything for me. I couldn’t even taste it.
Very simple recipe to make, and doesn’t require a lot of ingredients or materials.
You probably have all of the ingredients already in your pantry: water, tea bags, honey.
If you’re going to leave the tea out in the sun ALL day instead of the 5 hours they call for, then I would suggest reducing the number of tea bags in there.
Also, you probably don’t need the mint leaves addition, though it did make the glass of tea look nicer.
