Hanging onto Summer: How to Make Sun Tea

With 90 degree days in the forecast this week, the heatwave around these parts sure does put new meaning into "hanging onto summer." It's been a particularly hot season here in Virginia this year and hot summer days call for southern traditions, like sun-brewed tea.

The added infusion of fresh peppermint leaves snipped straight from the garden is what gives the tea an added pick-me-up, and let me tell you — our peppermint game out back has been strong this summer.
