This is how we do "Sun Tea".

Take 3-4 family sized bags of Luzianne tea and put in a gallon size "Sun Tea" jar filled with water. Set the jar outside in the full sun for at least 4 hours.

After the teabags have set in the jar for the desired time, take the teabags out and give the tea a good stir. Add desired amount of sugar to taste then stir again. We then take a large lemon and cut half of it into thin slices and add to the tea jar. Then we take the other half of the lemon and squeeze the juice into the tea jar.

That's how we do our sweet tea ala Sun Tea.
This isn't very safe.
Sun Tea does not get hot enough to kill bacteria.

I disagree and heres the science to prove it
SODIS - Safe drinking water in 6 hours

Solar water disinfection - the SODIS method - is a simple procedure to disinfect drinking water. Contaminated water is filled in a transparent PET-bottle or glass bottle and exposed to the sun for 6 hours. During this time, the UV-radiation of the sun kills diarrhoea-causing pathogens.

We make a half gallon at a time. We use at least 2-3 quarts for tea water. We heat the water to a boil, and then shut off the heat as soon as it boils. Then put your tea bags in. Wait at least an hour. Pour the tea into your pitcher, and add 1/2 to 3/4 cup of sugar, depending on your tastes. Top off the pitcher with cold water. Drink and enjoy.

IMHO Luzianne is the best for iced tea. 1 cup sugar per gallon.
