Put 4 to 6 tea bags into a clean 2 quart glass container. Fill with water and cap. 


Place outside where the sunlight can strike the container for about 3 to 5 hours. Move the container if necessary to keep it in the sun. When the tea has reached its desired strength, remove from sun and put it in the refrigerator. You can leave the tea bags in the jar if you want.


The tea will probably taste more mellow than what you are used to from using boiling water. The slow seeping has a way of bringing out a slightly different flavor from the tea. 


Serve over ice with a few sprigs of fresh mint and/or a squirt of fresh lemon.
