Make sun tea.

Harness the sun to brew your own tea, year round. Use a clean glass container, cleaned with hot soapy water. Only brew the tea for 3-4 hours. Refrigerate as soon as it is ready and prepare an amount that will be consumed within a day. Toss old tea out, if there is any of this type of bacteria in you water supply it may start to grow, you'll see a white ropey strands of growth in the liquid- ugh.
