Of course my first blog post about food/beverage has to be about iced tea, right?! And what’s more Southern than sun tea? Let me tell you how to make sun tea; it’s super simple.
I picked up this drink dispenser on clearance at the end of last summer at Walmart for $4. It included 4 matching plastic cups.
Directions on How to Make Sun Tea:
Start by filling your container with water, then add 2 family sized tea bags. Put the top on and set your container out in the sun for approx. 3 hours. Exact time depends on how strong you like your tea. While it is still warm, bring the tea inside and add 1 cup of sugar until dissolved. Store your tea in the fridge and enjoy!
Extra goodies to add to your tea: lemons, limes, peaches, honey, mint, basil or berries.
It really is that simple to make your own sun tea at home for your whole family. Have you ever tried making this before? Do you have a new twist on this classic recipe that you would like to share? Leave a comment below, I would love to see your ideas.
