Brewing the Perfect Sun Tea
Brewing a cup of delicious sun tea requires a bit of patience and preparation. There are several steps to making a flavorful and vibrant cup of tea. But, how long should the tea steep?
Selecting Tea For Sun Tea
When choosing tea for sun tea, there are several options. Black tea leaves, herbal tea, and green tea all work great for steeping in the sun. For a milder taste, you can choose a lesser amount of tea leaves.
The amount of time it takes to brew a pot of sun tea depends on the tea you choose. Here are some recommended brew times:
- Black Tea: 6-7 hours
- Green Tea: 3-4 hours
- Herbal Tea: 4-5 hours
When the tea is finished steeping, strain out the leaves or bags, add sweeteners and/or citrus, then pour into glasses filled with ice. Add a fresh sprig of herbs for garnish. Enjoy your perfectly brewed sun tea!
