Southern Style Sun Tea

4 - 6 - regular sized tea bags
10 - cups water (2 1/2 quarts)
1 - cup granulated sugar or your preference
Ice cubes
lemon slices, orange slices & fresh mint, optional

Place tea bags into a clean 3 quart clear glass jar. Make sure to leave the paper tags on the outside of the jar. Add the water and screw on the lid. Let the jar of tea stand in direct sunlight for 3-4 hours or until the tea reaches the desired strength. Remove the tea bags and discard. Add sugar to suit your taste, then serve over ice. Refrigerate any leftover tea. Use within 2 days. The longer you let the tea sit outside the darker it will steep. Your preference will tell you exactly when to bring it in. Keep in mind sun tea is not as strong but more mellow than regular iced tea.
I saw this on a looking around journey and thoight I would share with you.  I use to do this all the time, think I will get back to this idea.
