Tutorial Tuesday: Easy Sun Tea

If you haven't made sun tea, well, you must. It's so easy and so refreshing. Here's how:
Things you'll need: Tea bags, mason jar (really, a glass cup or carafe would do, but it's best to have a fitting cover)
Step 1: Place tea bags and water in jar with 1:1 ratio (1 tea bag per 1 cup water)
Step 2: Seal the jar and place it in the sun
Step 3: Leave for 2-3 hours depending on how strong you like your tea.
Step 4: Remove tea bags and place in fridge. Drink when chilled.

Bonus: I like to make an extra glass and fill an ice cube tray with it. This way when I serve with ice, it won't dilute the flavor!

It's fun to add garnishes. I've been making peppermint tea (soooo refreshing on a hot day!). It's fun to add fresh sprigs of mint and slices of lime.

Do you make sun tea? What's your favorite flavor?

  1. I've always wanted to try sun tea. I never realized the process was so simple!

  2. Oh try it, Dawn! I just keep rotating the jars so I can have some every day. It's just so fresh and delightful!

  3. I've made sun tea before but I have't experimented with flavors which I think will lead to me liking it a whole lot more! But I love drinking from a mason jar and when I told my friends in Toledo Ohio that they thought I was crazy! How amazingly different everyone is!

  4. ANYTHING IN A MASON JAR WINS IN MY OPINION! This is seriously amazing. Cannot wait to try!

  5. Alex Jae and Sarah, I completely agree--mason jars rock my world!

  6. Trying this soon!...As a southern girl, I love some tea! Found you by way of ftlob and enjoy your blog. Stop by sometime and say hello...
