Hibiscus Sun Tea

I don't know why I haven't whipped up a jar of this already. But when it's 95 degrees outside and you can't take off any more clothes without getting arrested or embarrassing your kids, it's time to brew some tea by sunlight. 
When your body's hot, hibiscus is a natural for cooling off. I added in some of my favorite herbs just because. 

  • hibiscus flowers
  • chamomile
  • peppermint
  • nettles
  • elderberries
Fill up a large vessel with filtered water. 
Let stand in a sunny place on your porch for 24 hours. 
Filter through a strainer
