This time of year is one filled with bbqs, picnics, and outside fun. All of which I have yet to do... hopefully this weekend! One of my favorite things is sun tea - no matter whether it's winter or summer. Unfortunately, I have a problem with the commercial sun tea jars. They always develop a leak and then I can't use them anymore. I for one, do not want water or tea leaking all over my fridge. I tossed (I know, I'm horrible!) my old one when moving since it had just developed the leak.
When moving, I grabbed a glass bottle of tea from a convenience store (I know, horrible, right? But it was glass and I was really thirsty.) I hate buying tea from stores because it's so easy to make at home... unless you don't have a jar! But I discovered a few days later is that any jar can be a sun tea jar. I'm sure others already knew this, but I'm slow.
