Lovely sunset, Alice!

I stopped making sun tea when it was pointed out (last year) that letting dried organic material (tea) soak in water at temperatures not hot enough to kill anything, only to let bacteria grow, is an invitation to a nasty bug growing in the jar. I don't make sun tea any more. I make a quart or two at a time, but I use green tea bags and boiling water.
