A Fun Summer Activity- Make Sun Tea!

Sun tea is one of my family's favorite summer beverages...plus it's fun to make! Sun tea has a smoother taste than that of regular iced tea due to the sun's gentle warming of the water.

Making Sun Tea-
Fill a gallon-size clear jar or sun tea jar with water. Add eight regular-size tea bags and two of a flavored tea to the jar. Orange-spice, black currant, or raspberry tea works well.

Place the jar outside on a table, in the sun for three to four hours being sure to cover the jar with the lid or plastic wrap. The sun will gently heat the water, slowly steeping the tea.

As soon as the tea is as strong as you like, bring it inside and remove the tea bags. Sweeten the tea to taste and place the jar in the refrigerator to chill. Enjoy!
