Our summer bucket pull the other day was "Make sun tea". We decided that it would be fun to try a few different teas. So, we bought the Celestial Seasonings fruit sampler box, an all herbal and decaf mix.
They each picked a tea to make. Little J picked black cherry berry, Sassyfras chose blueberry, and Juiciness chose raspberry. I filled a large pitcher with water and they each took a turn filling smaller pitchers.
Since Little J is the most proficient at pouring, he started and that lowered the water level for the other two.
We made sure to label our teas. They sat in the sun for a couple of hours and then we put them in the refrigerator overnight to get good and cold for our tasting.
The kids were so excited to taste "their" chosen tea and share some with the rest of us. We used a little agave nectar to sweeten when needed.
I made this a little lesson in practicle life and grace and courtesy by allowing each of the kids to pour the tea they made for everyone and then serve it.
Juiciness does a great job with pouring, but still needs a little help...Little J was there for him.
In the end we all decided that the black cherry berry was our favorite, but there are still two more teas to sample in the box!
