Chai Sun Tea

Thursday, June 4, 2009

The weather is finally warming and I pulled out my sun tea pitchers from deep storage. This one is a natural for sun tea, so I thought I'd post it. It's nothing special, but it's easy and a refreshing twist on the typical Lipton's tea bags.

Chai Sun Tea

Chai Sun Tea
2 inches fresh ginger, sliced thin
2 sticks cinnamon
6 peppercorns
6 whole cloves
6 cardamom pods (a couple more if you like cardamom)
6 black tea bags

Wrap the spices in cheesecloth and drop into a 1 gallon tea pitcher. Leave out in the sun for at least a couple of hours. Enjoy warm or cold.

  2. That sounds lovely. I've got everything but the cardamom pods, which I'll pick up next time I'm at the natural foods store. I love chai, but I've never tried it as sun tea. Thanks for the inspiration!

  6. Funny thing is, since I made this tea, we've had hardly a stitch of sun. Oregon is AWESOME that way =/
