So I talked to a friend this morning who asked me what I was doing. I told him I was making sun tea and he looked at me like I just stepped off a space ship or something. I started laughing and was like, "You never heard of sun tea?" I was kind of shocked. I guess it's more of a Southern thing, well drinking iced tea is itself a Southern thing but so is making sun tea. Okay, for all those out there who never had sun tea, let me give you the simple recipe.
-1 Large Clear Glass Pitcher With Lid (Use those big pickle jars if you got one or you can purchase the jugs/pitchers with a spout or nozzle that you flip up to pour.)
Wash your container good and then dry. Add your water and about 4 or 5 tea bags. Place the lid on and set the pitcher outside in the sun for a couple of hours. After a couple of hours bring the pitcher in and add sugar or sweetener, if you prefer. Pour into glasses and drink. Voila! You just made sun tea!
