I'm Julie, a feisty, but rather shy redhead from New York, who moved to the Midwest to follow my dreams (and the love of my life). I'm passionate about decorating our home with my own unique affordable DIY style which is a mix of eclectic, contemporary, traditional, with a splash of country. I don't follow the crowd, but trust my gut instead. I hope to inspire you to try some of my ideas. I also love to cook and share my easy recipes. My family begs me to make my homemade meatballs and pizza. I hope you will try them and hang out with me for a while or subscribe to my e-mail letter here:

Sun Tea Recipe

sun tea recipe
As long as I can remember
my Mom and sisters have always made sun tea.
This is how I make mine:
 I take any large glass jar or pitcher (I used one of those huge pickle jars today from the bulk isle)

I can find that will hold at least 2 quarts of water (no plastic).

We have well water so I use bottled water.

Add 6-8 tea bags of your choice (no need for the cold water tea bags in my opinion).

Remove the paper tag on the tea bag.  I used black decaf in this picture. Then wash your lemon, slice it up and add it to the water.

Find a sunny location and let it sit for hours (at least 2)
I use my deck post and love to watch it steep from my kitchen window.

If you add enough lemon there is no sugar needed.

Chill and serve over ice.

Enjoy the antioxidants!
(should last if refrigerated for 4-5 days)
