Tastes just like sun-tea, but without all the time. Not bitter like boiled tea.


  1. Place water and teabags into a microwave safe container.
  2. Microwave on high for 3 and 1/2 to 4 minutes.
  3. Take out tea bags (without squeezing) and pour into clean gallon container.
  4. Add sugar and mix until sugar dissolves.
  5. Fill up container with cold water.

I used green tea and microwaved 5 bags for 4 minutes. This turned out very good, and I liked how easy it was to make. Not bitter at all. Only thing is next time I'll add another tea bag. It was a little weaker than I like, but that could have been because I used green instead of black tea. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks so much!

This Recipe Is Awesome! I Live in Upstate NY and in the Winter there really is no way to make Sun tea in the sun (unless you would like a sun-tea-sacle!) so this is perfect for those winter time sun tea cravings!

I found this a little weak and needed more sugar. Used 6 bags and more sweetner second time around and liked better.
