[MOL] Is Sun Tea Safe???

Nutrition: Is Sun Tea Safe?
Karen Collins New York Times Syndicate

Q: Is “sun tea” safe to drink? A: No.

When tea steeps in the sun for several hours, conditions are ideal for bacteria to multiply rapidly and pose a significant risk of illness. Iced tea should be prepared in a brief time, by steeping tea leaves, for example, in boiling-hot water for three to five minutes. Brewed tea should be refrigerated immediately, not left at room temperature, where it is susceptible to bacterial growth.
