what container should be used for Sun Tea?

Tea Question

Can a plastic container be used to make sun tea?

No - you shouldn't use plastic to brew sun tea. A large glass container is optimal.

Plastics leach chemical into the tea. We should all avoid using them with our food stuff including sun tea if at all possible.

We have some excellent suggestions for sun tea containers at the bottom of our How to Make Sun tea article.

You can even use a big jar - like a deli pickle oversize jar. Ask you local deli if they can give you one or sell you one if you can't locate a sun tea jar in your area.

I hope this helps - and please avoid the plastic containers if you can.
