Refreshing and healthy too! This works best on a summer sunny day! In the winter I just make this by heating the water to boiling, then steeping the tea bags for 10-20 minutes. Adapted from the Heart & Stroke Foundation.


  1. Place the cold water in a large clear glass pitcher or jar.
  2. Add the tea bags and the mint leaves.
  3. Cover with a small dish towel or washcloth, large enough to keep debris and bugs out.
  4. Place the tea in direct sunlight for 4 to 5 hours.
  5. Divide the strawberries and ice between six tall glasses.
  6. Discard the tea bags and mint.
  7. Sweeten to taste with sugar or honey.
  8. Pour the tea into the glasses and serve. Enjoy!

I like the combination of the strawberries and mint... Though I used a mint tea instead of the fresh mint, due to what I had on hand. Used sugar instead of honey to sweeten. Thanks!

Refreshing ice tea! I changed the water to 4 cups and used 6 tea bags. I like a strong flavored tea. I used red raspberry herbal tea bags. Very nice subtle mint taste. Very pretty with the frozen berries. Thanks Sharon!
