How To Make Delicious Sun Tea

Making sun tea is a simple yet delicious way to enjoy a cold beverage on a hot day. Here’s how you can make your own!


  • 6 tea bags
  • 1/2 gallon of cold water
  • 1/2 cup of sugar (optional)


  • Add the tea bags to a gallon-sized glass jar filled with cold water. Cover with the lid and leave to steep for several hours in direct sunlight.
  • Once the tea has reached your desired strength, remove the tea bags and stir in the sugar if using.
  • Pour the tea into tall glasses, then add ice cubes and your favorite flavorings (lemon, lime, mint, etc). Enjoy!

Note: For best results, use cold water and leave the tea to steep in direct sunlight for at least 4 hours.
