Sun Tea

I'm attempting to make some sun tea today using a collapsible Nalgene 48 oz. bottle, the GSI H2Joe, and some loose leaf tea.

If this works out it'd be a nice change of pace from the normal swamp water we drink in the woods. :)

I'm also playing around with solar purification of water today as it's warm and sunny.

I'll let you know how it all goes.

Thanks for reading,

It's called "SODIS", PET bottles work best. This method is especially valuable in developing countries where fuel is lacking or too expensive

This project was a massive failure.

The "tea" was weak and was barely palatable.

We pulled the bag early because the kids wanted to try the brown water and it was so bad that I pitched the entire thing.

I suppose given more time it'd work just fine but the few hours we left it out there were not enough.
