Sun Tea

Sun Tea "brewing" on the porch banister

A perfect day for making good old fashioned sun tea. Easy enough to do with a gallon jug of water & a proper tea bag - you're just a few sunny hours away from enjoying crisp tea - with or without sugar. As kids - I think grandma used this notion to keep us entertained. I liked to check in on the jugs sitting on the porch - noting how the water darkens as the sun draws nigh in the sky with a real stout tea if you've left it out until dusk. From the looks of this batch, it's almost time to slice a lemon.

@SunnyShores It could have been true back in that time. Things were so different back then.
