} Sun Tea, For You.

Ah, how I love tea. Herbal or not. Hot water infused or not.

Yeah, sun tea. Perfect for summer: yummy + easy! Here’s how it’s done!

– Find a good clean glass jar, with a lid.
– Fill with tap water, room temperature.
– Add anything you’d like, basically.*
– Close lid, shake it up a little.
– Leave jar in the sun for a couple of hours.
– Strain, add sugar if needed.
– If you want it cold, now would be the time to put it in the fridge a little, add ice cubes and whatnot. If not, it will be naturally warm (not hot) and that’s pretty refreshing too in the summer heat!
– Drink up people! :P

Here I chose to do an herbal one, with fresh mint, slices of lemon, a few dried rose and blue borage petals, a little sugar.

* The possibilities are endless! Actual tea sachets (or loose leaves), rosemary, lavender, cilantro, orange, strawberry, and even whole spices like black pepper seeds or cardamom. Whatever suits your fancy. Basically, use what you have on hand at that precise moment, and it’s bound to be delicious anyway! :)

And then, enjoy! Just as I am right this moment writing this, drinking the results of what you see up there! :)

Two wonderfully fabulous shops that I discovered in the past week have to be mentionned here!

They make gorgeous raincoats, like the classic but edgy trench, but also the stylish hoodie! They are 100% waterproof and come is popping colors.

Representing “Shine” is Madeline Wood.

She offers a great variety of skirts, tops, pants and dresses with great textures and colors from pleats and buttons in fuchsia up to brown.
