Growing up, I really didn't know there was another way to enjoy tea other than sweet sun tea. One of my fondest memories of summer's by far. I used to make this myself years ago and just forgot. It's so hot in the summer, it's hard not to crave a refreshing beverage. This is a frugal and delicious treat for the summer.
What you need: Jar and Tea Bags
This jar is actually a large pickle jar bought at Walmart (with pickles of course, this is post pickles).
I use Nestea Family Iced Tea Bags, 2 family size bags and 1 raspberry tea bag. *This is actually a pretty strong brew, we like to make it thick and then thin it out with water to make it go longer between brews.
- Fill jar with water
- Add tea bags
- Place in the sun for 6 hours
- Cool and Enjoy!
I think averaging out the cost per glass is about 7 cents a glass! Enjoy with lemon and sugar if you so desire (and I so desire some sugar in my tea). I'm actually using tea to help wean myself off of my summer soda addiction!
