1/2 cup simple syrup (equal amounts sugar and water heated until the sugar dissolves; cool)
6 slices carambola (also referred to as star fruit)
3 tablespoons sugar
Bring 1 quart of water to a boil over medium heat. Put the tea bag in the water, then turn off the heat and let the tea steep until cooled. Mix 1/2 cup simple syrup with the tea and add it to a mason jar or other type of jar. Saute the carambola fruit in a pan with the sugar on a side burner of the grill. When the fruit has caramelized remove it and add it to the jar with the tea. Pour over ice and use 1 piece of fruit for each glass as a garnish.
