    jimjam63's Note:

    Using any microwave you can have the BEST tea. I have been making this for 15 years and have been constantly improving the recipe. Read the directions carefully and you will have the best tea out there! Please note: use Lipton Regular Size tea bags, NOT the family size.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Using a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup (must be microwaveable), add about 3 cups water. I prefer purified or bottled, room temp is best.
    2. 2
      Put the three tea bags in the water and lightly knead the bags to make sure they are soaked. Don't over do it or they could tear.
    3. 3
      Place the measuring cup into microwave and cook for 3 minutes. Depending on your power output you may increase or decrease the time.
    4. 4
      Let the tea steep for about 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      While it is steeping, cut an orange into 3-4 slices, throwing out the ends.
    6. 6
      Drop the slices into a 1 gallon pitcher.
    7. 7
      Add the sugar, covering the slices pretty good.
    8. 8
      (Sometimes I shake the pitcher to ensure the sugar coats the orange slices well)
    9. 9
      When tea had steeped and is still warm, pour over the orange/sugar and stir. Warm tea will help dissolve the sugar making a better blended product.
    10. 10
      Add water, not a full gallon as this will dilute the recipe. I use about 3/4 gallon. Stir well.
    11. 11
      Pour over lots of ice and enjoy!
