So, I love naturally flavored water. But it just never crossed my mind to naturally infuse tea. I mean, lemon. Yeah, obviously. But other fruit. Nope, it never dawned on me.

Until a couple weeks ago. I was making my first batch of sun tea. I decided to drop a few lemon wedges into the tea. Then I realized I had some strawberries that needed to get used. What the heck. I dropped those in too.

You know what happened next? Awesomeness!

This was the best tea I have ever had! The lemon and strawberry flavors really shine. And I added my favorite sweetener, Truvia. You can sweeten the tea or leave it unsweetened. Totally your call.

It tastes best if you refrigerate the tea and fruit overnight before serving. But it is good right away too.

As I sipped on my fruity tea I couldn’t help but feel like it reminded me of something. Snapple! Duh. I made homemade Snapple! It tastes just like it. {ahem} It actually tastes better.

    I used to make sun tea all the time, but I never thought to infuse it with fruit. I’m trying this right now. Thanks for this–it looks delish!

    What do you mean, infuse in fridge overnight? The whole recipe, or just some of it?

    • Nicole Harris says:

      Yes, I like to leave the fruit in the tea overnight and remove it the next day. It gives it more flavor.
