here is the only one that i found in allrecipes.com Sun-Brewed Mint Tea SUBMITTED BY: FutureChefShay "A refreshing tea that's brewed by sitting in the sun for a few hours." INGREDIENTS * 2 quarts water * 1/4 cup wildflower honey * 1 large lemon * 2 bunches fresh mint leaves DIRECTIONS 1. Pour the water into a large glass container with a lid. Stir in honey until dissolved. 2. Zest the lemon, being careful not to include any white pith, and juice the lemon. Combine the zest and juice with the honey water mixture. 3. Hold a bunch of mint in one hand; use your other hand to twist and squeeze the leaves, slightly bruising them to release their fragrance and oils. Immerse the bunches in the water mixture. Cover the container and place in direct sunlight for two hours. Remove the mint leaves, shake, and serve over ice in tall glasses, garnished with a mint sprig.
