How To Make Sun Tea - Elderberry Iced Tea Recipe

Elderberry Energy Iced Tea

As the summer days roll in, there is nothing better than a crisp iced tea to cool off. Elderberry Boost's Energy tea makes an amazing iced tea. Our Elderberry Energy tea is a fruity and refreshing green tea, blended with immune boosting elderberries, and the tropical flavors of mango, kiwi and passion fruit. This tea is stocked full of vitamins A, B, and C. The caffeine from the green tea in combination with the elderberries is the perfect way to get your daily boost.

Unlike other products on the market, we have carefully crafted a one-of-a-kind product, combining the benefits of loose leaf tea (highest quality ingredients) with the convenience of traditional sachets (no fuss).  Our tea sachets are 100% plant-based, with zero artificial ingredients. No glues. No food grade plastics, no ink/dye - just pure, all-natural ingredients. 

Although this tea has made for a wonderful hot tea all winter long, I wanted to share with you an easy and creative way to make a refreshing iced tea for all summer long.

How To Make Elderberry Sun Tea

Sun tea is brewed in a warm place, such as in the summer sun or on a kitchen counter. You don’t have to boil water like other ice tea methods. To make sun tea—simply add water and tea bags to a glass jar, let steep and the tea is ready to drink within hours.  


One gallon tea pitcher, glass container or jug with a lid

6 Elderberry Boost Energy Tea Sachets 

Filtered Water

Lemon Wedge & Berries for garnish

Optional: Elderberry Boost Syrup or other sweetener


Step One: Fill tea pitcher with one gallon of filtered water.

Step Two: Add 6 Elderberry Energy Tea sachets to container and put on the lid. It is important to have a lid on your container to prevent the water from evaporating.

Step Three: Place iced tea pitcher in an area with full sun for most of the day. I love making the tea in the morning and it is ready by the afternoon. We recommend 3-6 hours depending on intensity of sun light. Place on a dark tablecloth or table to attract more sunlight if possible.

Step 5: Sweeten and serve Iced Tea

Add iced tea to a glass full of lemons and berries for additional flavor. To sweeten the iced tea (and for an extra immune boost), add 1 tablespoon of Elderberry Boost Syrup. You also can add a tablespoon of monk fruit or other sweeteners of your choice.
