The weekend for me is a relaxing time to spend with my family, doing little special things we don't usually have time for during our busy week. This weekend, now that the sun is shining, I'm going to harness the power to make something special - I'm making Sun Tea.
We all know the health benefits of tea, so here is an easy way to brew a simple cup of tea.
What you'll need:
- a glass pitcher or jar
- lid, plastic wrap or paper towel to cover the pitcher

- ice cubes
- slices of lemon wedges (these are optional, but so good in iced tea)
