It’s gonna be a hot one this year. And it’s not even officially summer yet! I’m continuing to use the sun to my advantage. Last week, I made this tea with my first pickings from my stevia plants.
It’s easy. In a large glass container, (I had a 2 quart glass pitcher-I don’t recommend plastic), grate one medium sized knob of ginger. It’s best to grate instead of slice. Add a few sprigs of mint and a handful of stevia leaves, if you have them. Cover the jar with a tight fitting lid and place outside early in the day, where the jar can get at least 6-8 hours of full sun exposure. Strain and enjoy. If you don’t have stevia leaves, just sweeten after you pour the tea into individual glasses for serving. Place in the refrigerator for drinking later.
