Refreshing Fruit Tea

I love this yummy fruit tea recipe.  My girls are into drinking "Arnold Palmers" which is a mix of lemonade and tea.  My oldest doesn't drink "POP" as they call it here in the midwest so I thought everyone might enjoy this tea.  I have several different fruit tea combinations - some with more orange juice, some with almond flavoring.  I thought this one was pretty simple and one the girls might enjoy.  We loved it. I have even used this tea for a baby shower and served in wine glasses - just a yummy, fun, refreshing summer tea!




Refreshing Fruit Tea

3 cups boiling water          or         **8 cups boiling water
4 regular size tea bags                       4 family size tea bags
¾ cup sugar                                       2 cups sugar
4 cups cold water                              6 cups cold water
1 cup orange juice                             3 cups orange juice
1 cup pineapple juice                        3 cups pineapple juice
1/4-1/2 cup lemon juice                    1 cup lemon juice

Pour boiling water over tea bags; cover and steep 5 min; remove and discard tea bags; stir in sugar until dissolved; stir in cold water and juices.  Serve over ice with orange or lemon wedge.  

* I like more of an orange flavor so I added more oj and less lemon juice. Feel free to adjust the flavors according to your liking!  This tea is also great if you use mint flavored tea bags!

**I bought family size tea bags and I had to make a large amount of this tea for a bridal shower.  It was hard to just double.  I came up with the version listed above - truly by just tasting and winging it. It was yummy!
