    Gramma Sitko’s Iced Tea

    1 gallon of filtered water

    3 packets of a good black tea (I recommend using Pascoe’s Woodlands Iced Tea packets)

    ¾ cup of sugar

    5 to 6 ounces of lemon juice

    Fill glass jar with 1 gallon of filtered water, add tea packets, and tightly cover with lid.

    Place jar in sunny location for 3 to 4 hours.

    Remove tea packets from jar.

    Mix sugar and lemon juice in a 1 gallon size pitcher, then pour in the warm Sun Tea.

    Stir well and refrigerate immediately.

    Green Ginger Tea

    Peel approximately 1 inch of fresh ginger root and slice it thinly.

    Place the ginger in a saucepan, cover with 4 cups of water and simmer for 15 minutes.

    Let ginger steep in the boiled water for 5 minutes before removing and discarding.

    Brew Green Tea in another pot.

    Combine both teas.

    It’s recommended that you consume 3 to 4 cups of the mixture per day.

    Store mixture in the refrigerator and discard any leftovers after 24 hours.

    Caution:  If you have a medical condition, take medication, or are pregnant, consult with your healthcare provider before using Green Tea and/or Ginger either medicinally or therapeutically because they may interact with certain medications and medical conditions.
