Iced Tea Day

Summer is here and, for some, there is nothing better than a big glass of iced tea to cool you down. To avoid heating up the kitchen with boiling hot water, make your tea outside with the sun's help.

Sun Tea

4 cups of cold water
5 teabags

Wash a clear container thoroughly with hot water and soap. Sun tea steeps at an ideal temperature for bacterial growth, so it's important to sanitize the container before you start.

Fill the container with the cold water and the teabags; close the lid tightly.

Place the container in direct sunlight for at least 2 hours. Taste the tea periodically to see if it's ready.

Remove the tea bags and sweeten the tea to your taste.

Serve tea over ice.
