I always make sun tea in the summer, since I never know what kind of container to use for hot tea that I will put on ice. (Plastic will melt, glass will break, etc).
A friend just told me that it's dangerous to make sun tea, because bacteria can grow very easily in the warm water. I checked it out and snopes.com says that's true!
I don't know of anyone who's gotten sick from sun tea, but we have had food poisoning in our household and I do NOT want to go thru that again!
Does anyone brew hot tea for iced tea? What kind of container do you brew it in?
