It's an American thing.

AFAIK, it's actually an African thing. At least according to my globe-trotting, development-studies-professor Auntie, who spent a lot of time there for her PhD. Americans traditionally drink iced tea, but that's made with hot water rather than cold.

But that's just stuff I've heard. I have no way to tell how accurate it is.

Still, shouldn't take more than about ten minutes in this heat. :)

Your Aunt is likely very right though.

I know it as an american southerner thing. You brew the tea in the sun for many many hours, (hotter the better), then you bring it in and sugar it and put it in the fridge til it's very cold.

No matter where it's form, it's still very nice to drink. And I think better than normal boiled water ice tea.

Weren't there safety warnings about sun tea?

Safety? in what sense? it's dangerously refreshing? :)
