Wookiee Hut Cuisine presents:
Sun Tea of the Living Force
by Rosie

Luke Skywalker and Biggs Darklighter were notorious for racing their skyhoppers through the gullies and ditches of Beggar's Canyon. They were actually very good, but as kids do, they'd run into mishaps to the dismay of their relatives. It was a wonder they never got seriously hurt, or worse!

Were they really so talented that they didn't get hurt or killed? Partly ... Luke, after all, was the unknowing and anonymous son of the greatest pilot the galaxy had ever known. But they had a guardian angel watching after them, that crazy old hermit called Ben Kenobi.

How did the former Jedi Master manage to be exactly where he was needed when these young hotheads were racing pellmell through the dangerous canyon? It was due to Kenobi's love of sun tea — he'd fill a jar with water and tea leaves and herbs in the twilight, cap it and leave it on his front doorstep and go for a walk. The distance from his place to Beggar's Canyon and back would get him back when the tea was steeped, yet cooled down in the desert planet night.

It just so happened that the days he craved the tea, it turned out Luke and Biggs were racing as the sun went down. The living Force does move in very strange ways!

  • 1 one-gallon, wide-mouthed glass jug with screw on lid or a Sun Tea jar - usually available in the summertime in discount department stores or a housewares store
  • 8 herbal or regular tea bags
  • 1 gallon cold water
Fill your wide mouthed jar or Sun Tea jar with cold water.

Add tea bags. If the bags have strings and tags, screw the lid on with the tags hanging outside the jar.

Place the jar outside in a spot that will get at least two hours of full sun.

After the tea has finished brewing, remove the bags from the jar and replace the lid.

Place the tea into the refrigerator to cool for a couple of hours before serving.

Serve over ice and garnish with a slice of lemon per glass.
