Sun Tea

August 15, 2007

When life hands you 101 degrees, make sun tea. We’re making sun tea while we wait for the air conditioning repairman to show up. OK, I’m making it. The chillun are in the wading pool.

This tea, by the way, is rooibos, which I think is so-so when it’s hot but fantastic when it’s iced with a little bit of sugar. It also turns a nifty red color. Wikipedia says that we can thank Precious Ramotswe of the No. 1 Ladies Detective Agency books for at least some of the drink’s popularity, and that’s good enough for me.

    Ahhh sun tea. I haven’t had that in years. Of course iced tea is the table wine of the South but sun tea is something special.
