Tea Question

How long should i brew sun tea?


Well - thank you for the tea question about sun tea. There are many different elements that come into play when you are making sun tea.

The type of tea you are making, size of container, type of container, and intensity of the sun all affect how long you need to brew your sun tea for.

There is no hard answer like 4 hours - if someone tells you that, it is really just a guide.

The best indicator of when your sun tea is ready, is the color of the steeped tea.

This can range depending on the things mentioned above as well as where you live geographically, wind etc.

Hope that helps a little - to get some recipes for making sun tea visit our Sun Tea Recipes section.

I hope this helps,
