"My husband and I love this especially in the summer. We don't like sweet tea so we leave the honey out."
"Added 1/4 tsp baking soda (seems to take away some of the bitterness) and some lemon juice and lemon slices. Easy and fun to make."
"Liked the honey, needed to be a bit stronger, so next time I will add a few more tea bags. Used this to go with "recipe#175150". Thank you for nice addition to my afternoon break!"
"I loved the hint of honey in this tea!! I put the tea outside at 9 this morning and just brought it in now at 7. It was a on the cooler side but the tea still brewed nicely on the cement. I'm going to try this one on the family too this summer. I adopted this chef for the *Spring PAC 2008* game"
"Like another reviewer, I used lemon tea bags, too. I love sun tea and this one did not disappoint. Thanks for sharing!"
"I've made this several times with green tea bags. I skipped the honey and added splenda instead to each individual glass I drank. Good idea!"
"I used green tea bags once and it was great!. I also used lemon tea bags(black pekeo tea with lemon) that was also great!."
"I love suntea! We always brew the tea in the sun first then add the juice of 1 lemon and a 1/4 cup sugar. The honey would be a nice alternative I think."
"Soooo refreshing! I've never tried this before, but it's been a big hit with the kids and much healthier than the store bought powder. I added some lemon juice for a bit of a twist."
"I make my tea this way too!!! Love the honey!"
"this is how i make it too honey is interesting twist .dee"
"This is how I make my tea minus the sweetener (honey). This method eliminates the bitterness you sometimes get when using boiled water. Thank you for sharing and bringing back memories!"
"In my opinion this is the ONLY way to make iced tea. My mother made it like this when I was young and it's still my favorite way to make it. I don't know why it's better this way but for some reason it just is. It's one I make again and again. Thank's so much for sharing this one deb!!"
"Sun Tea is a summer stable for my family. I purchase three glass jar with a hand pushed pouring spout on the side to always have one sweet tea and one regular tea in the refrigerator at all times. The extra picture is to make what ever type gets low."
