Summer Sun Tea

Summer Sun Tea

Difficulty Easy
Serves 0
Prep Time 10 Min
Cook Time 30 Min
6-8 bags Tea
1 Large Glass Gallon Jug*
1 Container Frozen Concentrate Pink Lemonade


*The best choice of glass is a jar with a metal screw-top lid (metal attracts heat). Gallon size glass jars can be hard to find. If you cant find a gallon glass jar, a variety of glass jars will work to make sun tea. Any recycled juice or food jar, a large Mason jar, or any other jar that can be closed securely will work. I used a large clear pickle jar for years until I finally got a big jar with a spout.


  1. Fill the jar with water 1/3 from the top and drop in the tea bags.
  2. Sit the jar in the sun until desired strength or color. Dark tea color doesn't take long when the weather is hot. In the winter or when the suns not shining just sit the jar on the kitchen counter which works just fine.
  3. Remove tea bags and add frozen lemonade. Top up the water by rinsing out the lemonade container if you have any room left.
  4. My mother would always add 1/4 cup of sugar, but I never added any sugar when making this at my home. If it?s not sweet enough for ones taste buds, adding 1/4 cup of sugar helps.
