While I was growing up my mom always had Sun Tea in the refrigerator. There’s something so refreshing about a cold glass of tea on an incredibly hot Summer day! Now as I have my own family, I often keep Sun Tea available as well. And my husband is happy that he has an option other than water and milk to drink!
4-5 black tea bags
1/2 cup sugar or honey
2 quart Glass Pitcher
- Fill the 2 quart glass pitcher with water. (You do not want to use a plastic pitcher, as it will give the tea funny taste).
- Place tea bags in water. They will float at the top, but once they start to soak up the water they will sink down some.
- Cover the top of the pitcher with plastic wrap or a towel. Place pitcher outside in the sun for 2 hours.
- Remove tea bags. Add sugar or honey mixing well. You may also squeeze some lemon in for a little more flavor.
- Serve over ice.
