Fill the CamelBak Horizon Rocks Tumbler halfway with ice, then add the vodka, lemon juice, and sun tea syrup. Seal with lid, then grip tightly, making sure to cover the air vent with your finger, and shake for about 10 seconds. Remove lid, top with more ice, then garnish with lemon wheel and tea flowers. In the morning, combine all ingredients in a jar, and set in the sun. Let brew throughout the day, shaking occasionally to help the sugar dissolve. When all the sugar is dissolved and the tea is at your desired strength, strain the tea leaves out and chill syrup until ready to use.
