Super Sun Tea

>> Thursday, June 2, 2011

Thanks to Kevin H. for this photo.
Just about any kind of loose or bagged tea will make great iced tea, but this is one of our favorites. Not only is it refreshing, but the coriander seeds and mint are good for digestion and freshening your breath. Coriander is also good for diabetics and those with high cholesterol. If you grow your own herbs, this is also a good way to use up the abundance of mint leaves and coriander once your cilantro goes to seed!

1 cup orange pekoe or black tea leaves
1 tablespoon whole coriander seeds
1/4 cup mint leaves, torn
2 quarts hot water

Place ingredients in a clear container and pour the water over it. Cover the container and place it in a sunny location for at least 2-4 hours. Strain out the leaves and seeds. If you like sweet tea, add sweetener before refrigerating. Serve over ice with mint leaves or a lemon garnish.
