This is one of my favorite things to do in the summer.
A large jar. I use a Costco sized pickle jar.
6-8 tea bags. I used 7 of Good Earth.
Wash the jar first to make sure there is little to no bacteria in it.
Sun tea takes at least 6 hours of direct sunlight. I typically only have 3 or 4 by the time I get around to it so I fill half of the jar with cold filtered water and the other half of the jar with water I boiled in my kettle.
Wrap the string for the tea bags around the handle of the spoon and balance it over the mouth of the jar. Poor the hot water over the tea bags to fill the jar completely.
Remove the tea bags from the spoon and close the lid.
Set it out in the sunshine for the desired amount of time.
Once the sun runs out, I test the tea and if it is good I put it in the fridge and enjoy it the next day when it is nice and cool!
Here is the video I made! Enjoy!
