Cinnamon, cloves and apricot spice is a triangle defense invented for a cold winter's day, but can taste even better on a hot Summer day. Although this European style tea is great hot, it is all the more better chilled. The ice-and-spicy elements for this sun tea will take you for a stroll down the cobblestone streets and land you a seat at a patio of a European cafe on a hot summer day.
4-5 heaping tablespoons of apricot spiced loose leaf tea like Apricot Chai

Large glass pot with lid
2 teaspoons sugar
