Summer Solstice Strawberry-Mint Sun Tea Recipe

Summer is here, and the weather is showing it.

Our gardens are growing in full force with and abundance of mint. We have Orange-Mint, Mojito-Mint, Peppermint, and Spearmint and a couple of other varieties I think adopted our yard. 

 

I find myself wondering what to do with this abundance of mint, and of course, drink recipes seem to be at the top of my list. So far I have created two drink recipes that I am sure you will LOVE. The first is this Summer Solstice Strawberry-Mint Sun Tea Recipe (below), and later I will share with you a Ginger Mojito that was a hit at my Women’s retreat . 

Sip this tea at your Solstice celebration next to your fire, under the full moon and feel refreshed and ready for the heat of summer ahead.

Ingredients

  • 6-8 cups cold water
  • 4 Oolong tea bags
  • 2-4 mint sprigs with leaves
  • 30 frozen whole strawberries
  • Ice Cubes
  • Simple Syrup or Honey to taste
  • Fresh strawberries and mint for garnish

Instructions

  1. If you would like to drink your tea more quickly, brew the tea and mint on the stove in a pot with 2 cups of water. Once the water comes to a boil turn off the heat and allow the tea to steep for 2 minutes. Pour hot tea over ice, water, and ½ frozen strawberries and allow to sit for 5 minutes. Divide the remaining strawberries and ice between six tall glasses. Discard the tea bags and mint and fill each glass. Sweeten with simple syrup or honey to taste.
  2. I prefer to use fresh strawberries that I cut and freeze. You can use store-bought frozen berries if you like, this will save you time.

I just want good food and to live a Magickal life! Is that so much to ask?After many years of study, struggle, and disappointment; I realize that I could forge my own path using the knowledge I gained, and the simplest of techniques. Through persistence I found the honest answer... I can have both!
I love food and everything that goes with it. I have spent more than 35 years in the kitchen, enjoying every minute of it. Okay… well, enjoying nearly every minute of it.
In addition, I have disbursed nearly as many years studying Wicca, Witchcraft, and Paganism. Combining these two interests has created a Magickal path where food, spirituality play brilliantly together.
My love of whole healthy foods, and unique recipes has also lead me to help run a local teen cooking program, where I teach kids valuable life skills in the kitchen. In addition, I teach different cooking classes for adults on subjects of making the time spent in the kitchen more enjoyable and efficient, recipe creation, and how to make cooking a part of your Magickal and spiritual practice.
From this, The Magick Kitchen was born. My journey with you is about developing a spiritual experience with food, far beyond the dull habit of consumption. We have a marvelous opportunity here to take a most basic-mundane task and make it Magickal!
