Sun Tea


5-6 tea bags

Fresh distilled water

Clean jar



Drape the strings of the tea bags over the lip of the jar and fill with water. Screw cap on tightly and sit in sunny location. Brew to desired strength, then chill. Do not brew more tea than you plan on drinking that day. Note: It is imperative that you have washed your container with hot soapy water before trying this.
