My mom gets all the credit for this recipe. She has made it at showers and I snagged the recipe. Summer Tea has gotten nothing but good reviews. I am not a big tea drinker, but I love this! I have a friend that always requests the leftovers because she loves it so much!
2 quarts boiling water
8 small tea bags or 4 large tea bags
8 large mint leaves
2 cups sugar
1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice, undiluted
1 (6 ounce) can frozen lemonade, undiluted
Bring water to a boil. Add tea bags and boil one minute. Add mint leaves and steep 15 minutes. Add sugar to dissolve. Add orange juice and lemonade. Mix well. Add water to make 1 gallon.
Yields: 18 Servings
**I omit the mint leaves (not a mint person!) and it is wonderful!
