#1. It doesn't involve heating the kitchen!
#2: It has a great flavor.
The tea isn't going to boil so it won't be killing bacteria. So, make sure to start off with a very clean pitcher AND only keep the tea around for a day or two.

I'm a Lipton child.
It's what my momma always made.
I use 8-10 teabags depending on how much caffeine I
need want that day.
Fill the jar with filtered water (for the best flavor) and drop in the bags.
Move the tea to a sunny spot. I put my pitcher on my back porch in direct sun for over 2 hours. It can stay and brew longer. The sun does all of the work. Just make sure the pitcher is sealed (bugs like tea, too).
After it's done sunbathing, add some sugar already!
Chill and serve.
I like my tea SA-WEET. Hello, Texas!
Here's a link to the glass pitcher with a twisty, sealed lid.
I hope you're staying cool and enjoying this lovely summer!
