Recipe by Chef Joey Z.

With the intense heat we get in the southwestern portion of the US every summer, a nice tall glass of ice tea really hits the spot. I love this particular type of tea because it has so many health benefits. It is herbal, low in tannin and has no caffeine. I used the Numi brand, but other brands as long as they are good quality should work as well. Once done I like to put the tea in a tall glass with a slice of lime or lemon and a tsp. of agave nectar to sweeten.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces tea bags (Numi African Red Bush)
  • 4 quarts water (filtered)


  1. Fill a 4 quart jar with filtered water.
  2. Remove the string from each tea bag and put it into the jug of water.
  3. Set the jug with the tea bags and water in the direct sun and leave all day. The hotter the sun the better.
  4. Once finished set the jar with the tea bags in it into the fridge and let it chill over night or longer.
  5. Enjoy!
