Okay, so it's sun tea! Solar infusions are a wonderful way to extract flavor and medicinal properties from herbs. The long slow brewing method provides a tisane that is less acidic with a subtle flavor and aroma. Using a ratio of 2 tablespoons of fresh herbs per cup of purified water place glass jar in a warm sunny location for 10-48 hours.
I make mine with a variety of herbs but our favorite is lemon balm and stevia. The lemon balm has a strong bright lemon flavor and when complemented with the sweetness of the stevia it makes a delicious herbal lemonade.
