This is a recipe I found in my cookbook called Favorite Brand Name Classic Recipe Collection. It's really easy to make and the oranges offer a really refreshing citrus boost to the iced tea. I didn't include chilling time in the preparation time.
- With a vegetable peeler, peel each orange in a continuous spiral, removing only the outer colored layer of peel.
- In a large pitcher, pour boiling water over the tea bags and orange peel. Cover and steep 5 minutes. Remove tea bags. Chill tea mixture with peel in a covered container.
- To serve, remove the peel and pour iced tea over ice cubes in tall glasses.
- Sweeten to taste with honey (or brown sugar). Garnish with orange slices and fresh mint leaves, if desired.
