Sun Teas

Rated : 
 by 6 people
Makes: 8 servings View Nutrition Facts


  • 4 - 6 tablespoons  loose tea or 4 to 6 tea bags
  • 1 1/2 quarts  cold water
  • Ice
  • Lemon wedges


1. Place loose tea into a tea ball or 100-percent cotton cheesecloth, tying with a string. (Do not use decaffeinated, green, or herbal teas.) Put into a 2-quart clear glass container. Add cold water. Cover and let stand in sunlight or at room temperature for 2 to 3 hours. (Keep the container away from combustible materials. Sunlight coming through glass and liquid can concentrate a beam of light that may start a fire.)

2. Remove tea ball or bags. Serve over ice or refrigerate immediately. If desired, serve with lemon wedges. Store in the refrigerator and use within 24 hours.
