My wife used to make solar tea in a one gallon glass jar. I cannot remember how many tea bags she put in the jar. Anyone out there give me a clue???

RE: Solar Tea

Do you have individual bags or the "family sized" bags?

Here's a link to "sun tea" recipes on I think the six to eight figure sounds about right.

RE: Solar Tea

I used to make it all the time until lately I've read that bacteria can grow very quickly in it and it isn't the best way to make tea.

Agreed....tea can harbor some nasty stuff.
I make "quick sun tea"....I bring a qt of water to a boil, add 6 individual tea bags....let it sit until it cools to almost room temp, and pour over ice.
