Another key to enjoying delicious sun tea is staying safe!

The CDC and the National Tea Association have some specific recommendations for making sure your sun tea doesn’t breed any harmful bacteria:

  • Brew tea bags at 195 °F (91 °C) for three to five minutes before use.
  • Brew only enough tea that can be consumed within a few hours.
  • Never maintain brewed tea for more than eight hours at room temperature.
  • Discard any unused tea after eight hours.

If your tea develops a thick or syrupy appearance, it is best to not drink it as it may contain bacteria that could make you sick.
