Pour 4 cups boiling water over 3 cups fresh mint leaves and 5 green tea bags, then cover with a lid, and let it sit for approximately 1 hour. Strain and then chill.

When the mixture has chilled thoroughly, use cotton pads or a clean soft cloth soaked in the liquid and apply directly to a sunburn. You can also pour it over the sunburn if you wish.

If you find yourself without green tea, you can substitute black tea, which also contains tannins.
