What you'll need:
  • Mason Jar (2 quart size)
  • 4 Tea Bags of your favorite tea
  • Water
  • Sunshine
How to make Sun Tea:
  1. Fill one 2-quart glass mason jar to the top with water, add four tea bags and cap the mason jar lid.
  2. Place outside on the south side of your house in direct sunshine for about 3 hours.
  3. After three hours has passed, place the Mason jar in the refrigerator, or pour the tea into a large glass filled with ice to the top.
  4. Add a lemon or try a quarter of glass of Lemonade if you want to make it an Arnold Palmer.  

Please take note:
Sun Tea must be refrigerated, because it will not keep as well as iced tea made from boiling water.  Also, make sure to drink it the same day as brewed to ensure freshness. Repeat steps as many times as necessary all summer long, and enjoy your Summer.
