How to Make Sun Tea Inside

Sun tea is a type of sweet iced tea that is brewed in direct sunlight. It has been a classic summertime favorite for many years. But what if you want to make sun tea on a rainy day, or when you don’t have a sunny day available? Fortunately, you can still enjoy sun tea with some simple adjustments. Here is how to make sun tea indoors.

Things You’ll Need:

  • Tea bags of your choice
  • Brewing vessel, such as a pitcher or large tea pot
  • Stove or hotplate


  1. Fill your brewing vessel with cold water.
  2. Add desired number of tea bags to the water. Use one tea bag for every 8 ounces of water. For a stronger tea, you can use up to one bag per 4 ounces of water.
  3. Cover the vessel with foil and place it on the stove or hot plate.
  4. Turn heat on to medium-high and heat until boiling occurs.
  5. Turn stove off. Allow the tea to steep for 10 minutes.
  6. Remove the tea bags with a spoon, then replace the foil.
  7. Let tea cool to room temperature, then transfer to the refrigerator to cool.
  8. Stir in sweetener, such as sugar, honey or agave nectar, to taste.
  9. Serve over ice, if desired.

Making tea indoors is much quicker than making sun tea outdoors and doesn’t require any additional energy. If you don’t have a sunny day to make sun tea, now you know how to enjoy it any day of the year.
