WFMW: sun tea

It's just not summer for me unless we've made some sun tea. This is something that I remember my Grandpa doing ALL the time when I was little. There's just something about putting out water and tea bags and bringing in a hot glass jar full of lots of tea!

How to do it:

Step 1: Get a clear, glass, drink dispenser (or jar)

step 2: fill it with water

step 3: place 4-5 tea bags in the jar, screw on the lid

step 4: leave it in the hot sun for a couple of hours to steep (usually 2 hours is the min.)

step 5: bring it in, remove the teabags and dispense in a glass full of ice. For those of you who like to ruin your tea, you can always add sugar!
step 6: ENJOY!

What about you? What drink screams "SUMMER!" for you and your family?


  1. Thanks for stopping by and entering my giveaway. I love new visitors. Stop by again anytime.


  2. Amen--I have always been a sun tea drinker!!! I like it semi-sweet with a squirt of lime. :)

    Freshly squeezed lemonade is always a huge summer love!

  3. Yummm! Sun tea is my favorite! I love to shake it with ice and a tiny bit of agave syrup!

  4. I would have never thought of adding lime! And yes, REAL lemonade is awesome- to bad it's such a lot of work!!

  5. I've never heard of agave syrup, what is it?
