14. I'm sure if you have a compromised immune system or something like that NOTHING is safe
but sunlight through glass can actually sterilize water (although I don't think it penetrates very far - an inch or two) but come on! Don't drag the tea bags though the dirty kitchen sink, and you should be fine. Tea will get nasty tasting long before it gets toxic.

Honestly you can make cold tea with regular tea bags, you don't have to use those ones processed for cold brewing. They do taste alright (I bought some by accident once) much better than instant, but they bug me - I mean what did they do to them?
