You can use the Southern heat to make Sun Tea

It's time to put that Southern summer sun to work for something useful other than making you sweat! Check out this super simple recipe for a delicious and mellow sun tea, made with Luzianne tea.

We all know that during a typical Summer in the South, it gets HOT outside when the sun is blazing. Plain and simple.  And we all know there really isn’t anything better than a nice glass of iced sweet tea to make the temperatures seem a little more bearable.  If you didn’t already know, you can actually use that desert-like summer sun to brew your tea, and give it a little bit of a different, more mellow taste!  For our recipe, we used Luzianne tea, which is specifically blended for iced tea.  Here’s how you do it.

What you’ll need

  • 4 Luzianne teabags
  • 1 gallon of water
  • 1 container with a cover or cap
  • Up to 1 cup sugar (your preference)
  • lemon juice

  1. Fill container with water.
  2. Add sugar
  3. Add lemon juice
  4. Add 4 teabags
  5. Steep for 3-4 hours in the sun.
  6. Remove tea bags, stir, and refrigerate.
