A nice, cold glass of iced tea on a hot day is just so refreshing! Back in Texas, we had many 100+ degree days in a row. It got out of hand! I grew up in Maryland so I’m used to hot summers but not like Texas heat! My mom used to make iced tea year round and in the summer, she would brew it on our back deck, in direct sun. There’s just something about the smooth flavor of summer inside a nice, cold glass of sun tea.
It’s times like this I like to make sun tea (for two reasons).
#1. It doesn’t involve heating the kitchen! (I’ve even been known to cook dinner in a slow cooker on the back porch because its JUST TOO HOT!)
#2: It has a delicious flavor.
The tea isn’t going to boil so it won’t be killing bacteria. So, make sure to start off with a very clean pitcher AND only keep the tea around for a day or two. Sun tea is so delicious that I’m sure it will run out before then.
