    NorthwestGal's Note:

    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.

      Really, whats not to love? I made this last night and let it sit in the fridge. This morning I had a glass along with a spicy Indian egg dish for breakfast. I sweetened with Splenda and enjoyed every sip. Made for ZWT 8.

      What a terrific recipe NWG. This beautiful tea is refreshing and soothing. It has a wonderful orange flavor. Made exactly as written for a memorable cup of tea. I used earl grey and orange ginger tea bags, wild flower honey and cara cara oranges. It was quick and easy to make. Thanks for sharing. Made for the Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - Great Britain

      Super easy and refreshing! I tried three different flavors of tea: regular Earl Grey, Lady Grey and Irish Breakfast-all by Twinnings. I don't think I've ever used brown sugar in my iced tea and I enjoyed the flavors together! Perfect! Reviewed for ZWT 8!
