A refreshing citrus version of iced tea.
- 1 cup Boiling Water
- 3 Regular Sized Black Tea Bags
- 7 cups Water
- 1 whole Orange, Cut Into Slices
Boil one cup of water on the stove or in the microwave. Add tea bags and let them steep for about 15 minutes. You want to get a dark concentrate. The darker or stronger the concentrate, the more tea you will end up with. Pour your concentrate into a 1/2 gallon jug or pitcher and add approximately 7 cups of water. You can tell the strength of the tea by the color. Very light-colored tea is a weaker tea; dark will be strong. Adjust your tea strength to your liking by adding more water or more concentrate.
Add ice to your glasses and pour tea over. If you add ice to your container with the tea, it will dilute it.
Add 2 orange slices to the container. Take the handle end of a wooden spoon and muddle the orange slices on the bottom of the container to release the orange juices. Add more slices to the tea for flavor. Add an orange slice to the individual glasses as well for garnish.
