Sun Tea Safety

Think twice before you brew your sun tea. Using the sun as a method to brewing tea is highly discouraged. The sun tea will not get hotter than 130°F, which is not hot enough to kill bacteria. The CDC recommends the following when making tea:

  • Brew tea bags at 195°F for 3-5 minutes.
  • Brew only enough tea that can be consumed in a few hours.
  • Wash, rinse, and sanitize tea-making equipment regularly.
