Refreshing Sun Tea

You know how sometimes tea can taste abnormally bitter for seemingly no reason? It might be because you left the tea bag in too long, but sometimes even if you take the bag out on time, the taste is just… off? The reason might be that your tea leaves got burnt from your tea water being too hot! Yep, thats a thing. A lot of teas are not supposed to be steeped in boiling water! Who knew? 

Enter sun tea! This simple method will ensure your tea tastes EXACTLY how it is meant to. It works by letting the sun, and all of its goodness, slowly warm up your tea water. Thereby allowing the flavor to seep out slowly and fully in the matter of a few hours, depending how hot the day is. 

Let me introduce you to your new favorite summer drink!


What you’ll need:

✓ A large glass container like my 32oz mason jar pictured above

✓ Your favorite tea, mine is peppermint tea!

A water pitcher 

✓ A sunny spot on a warm-hot day


1. Fill your water pitcher with drinking water and let cool in the fridge

2. Fill your 32oz mason jar with drinking water and add 7 tea bags to it

2. Leave the mason jar out in the sun for a few hours, or until it looks and smells really strong. This will be your “tea concentrate”.

3. Add about 2/3 cup (to taste) of concentrate to your water pitcher and keep adding it until you reach your ideal flavor. 

Your tea concentrate should make you a few pitcher’s worth of refreshing sun tea! Add ice cubes for the best iced tea you’ve ever had.

Of course, you can make sun tea in your pitcher, it will just take a lot longer than making the concentrate. 

Sun tea is sometimes the only way I can get myself to drink water. If you’re like me, check out my 5 tips to help you stay hydrated.


Let me know if you end up trying it! I hope you love it!

    Thanks for your strategies. One thing really noticed is that often banks plus financial institutions know the dimensions and spending patterns of consumers plus understand that plenty of people max outside their cards around the trips. They correctly take advantage of this real fact and then start flooding a person’s inbox plus snail-mail box by using hundreds of no interest APR credit cards offers shortly when the holiday season closes. Knowing that when you are like 98% in the American general public, you’ll get at the one opportunity to consolidate financial debt and switch balances towards 0 rate credit cards. poonmpp – new cluster headache drug
