Fruit and Mint Iced Tea

It has been so HOT in Omaha lately - just thought of this yummy tea. This tea is perfect for your family, guests and I have served this at many baby or wedding showers in wine glasses. You will just love it.

Fruit and Mint Iced Tea

**can do this with mint tea bags instead of using fresh mint

1 qt boiling water
8 regular size tea bags (caff or decaff)
½ cup fresh mint leaves
1½ cups sugar
1 – 6 oz can frozen lemonade, undiluted
1 - 6 oz can frozen limeade, undiluted
¾ cup orange juice
3 qts of cold water

Boil one qt of water and remove from heat. Add tea bags and mint; cover and steep for 30 minutes; discard tea bags, stir in sugar and next 4 ingredients. Pour tea through a strainer into large container. Chill – serve over ice. `
