Sun Tea

Nothin' quite says summer like Sun Tea.  It makes me happy.  Five minutes of work for happiness ain't too shabby.

Here's how I do it:

Get a pitcher.  For the size I used, I put in 9 tea bags.  I had some regular 'ol Lipton's, but you can use whatever you like.

I sliced up some limes and threw them in with some fresh mint.  Hung the tea bags over the side and put the lid on.  

Stuck the pitcher out on the deck in the sun and waited.

By dinner time, I had me a glass of yummy iced tea.  

I like mine straight up, but you can certainly put sugar in yours, if that's what you prefer.


  1. I love homemade iced tea but I don't think I've ever done your sun version. I'll have to change that, lol. In Canada you buy iced tea already sweetened so I got a major shock the first time I ordered it in the States. Pucker!

  2. I haven't made sun tea in years. My Mom made it all summer long when I was growing up, but the first summer my husband and I were married and I put the tea out to steep all day he was like "What are you doing??"
    p.s. being from the south, I like LOTS of sugar!!

  3. That is so seriously easy! I love it - gotta try it!!

  4. Use the natural and gentle heat of the sun to brew a cup of tea. Sun Tea is another alternative to brewing tea that has been gaining popularity in recent years. Sun tea gained popularity in the United States.

  5. I love making sun tea! I have an overabundance of Lemon Balm so I usually throw some of that in!

  6. Oooh, that's a good idea Allison. I'll have to try that. Thanks!

  7. Wow!! It is superb way to make tea. It is natural way. I like Iced Lemon Tea more then hot tea. Its taste is awesome. I love it. And also like the way of making.

  8. It's really fantastic way to make sun tea. I never seen this type of post. I will try on it and serve to my friend on my birthday party. Thanks for sharing great idea.
