I've been making sun tea (all varieties) since I was a teenager. I have NEVER gotten a bacterial or viral infection from it. The aspartame in the diet drinks people are consuming every day will kill them faster.

This went over extremely well with our company and family alike. It was very easy to make and full of flavor. I only wish I'd made more! This is definitely a keeper for many a gather to come,
