- 8 mint sprigs, crushed
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 (12 ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate, thawed and undiluted
- 1 (12 ounce) can frozen lemonade concentrate, thawed and undiluted
- 7 cups water
- fresh mint sprig, and
- lemon slice (to garnish)
- Pour 5 cups of boiling water over the tea bags; add mint sprigs. Cover and steep 5 minutes.Stir in sugar; steep 5 more minutes.
- Remove tea bags. Pour tea through a fine mesh strainer into a pitcher, discarding the mint sprigs. Stir in concentrates and 7 cups water. Chill. Serve over ice. Enjoy!
Super Yummy! Kids loved it, thanks!
Sharon 5+ star rating for this iced tea! I made the tea in my Mr Coffee tea maker and added 7 tea bags with the mint sprigs. Liked a bit of zip so added 3/4 cup of sugar instead of one cup and had pink lemonade on hand. The citrus flavors along with the mint is wonderful and very refreshing on a hot day. We will be making this again soon. Thank you so much hon for posting this recipe.
I used 5 Tbsp of instant tea because that's all I had on hand. It was still excellent.
