Sun Tea Jar
Sun Tea is refreshing beverage that you can customize in many ways.
Aside from your choice of tea, the most fun way to customize your creation is with a fun glass sun tea jar.
Maybe it is a personal preference, but a glass sun tea jar gives me a far better brew than plastic and the
designs and style options are really neat. Think about the options you have for infusion in glass jars -
lemons and berries - possibilities are endless.
Why invest in a good glass sun tea jar? For me, waiting 3 or 4 hours for a
brew and then being dissapointed with the result is really dissapointing and a good sun tea jar can can help
give you a consistant result as opposed to plastic.
If you are looking for less expensive sun tea jars, you have options with a plastic
jar. These can be found anywhere - Target or Walmart - your favorite retailer will likely have
one. I think I have see plastic sun tea jars at the local drugstore for less than ten dollars. Again,
to me, it is worth spending a bit more to by glass because your glass sun tea jar will
be easier to sanitize, your teal will taste better and most are dishwasher friendly - although it
depends on the spigot in some cases.
Once you have a sun tea jar, take time to make sure that it is clean. You should
be sure that you read recomedations for sanitizing. Also, research the optimal sun and temprature
conditions for the jar that you purchase. I always make sure to set a timer once you decide how long you
want your sun tea to brew for. Understanding the flavor rewards, potential risks with different brewing
times of sun exposure and temprature will help you decide what is best for you.
