Found this recipe in my local electric coop monthly magazine. It's really tasty and sooo good and a nice change of pace from regular iced tea. (Number of servings depends on what size glasses you use).
- 6 tea bags
- 4 cups boiling water
- 1 1⁄2 cups sugar or 1 1⁄2 cups sugar substitute
- 1 cup pineapple juice
- 1 (6 ounce) canfrozen orange juice, -- thawed
- 10 cups cold water
- of fresh mint (to garnish) (optional)
- Steep tea bags in the 4 cups of boiling water for about 5 mins; discard tea bags.
- In a one gallon pitcher combine tea and remaining ingredients.
- Serve over ice and garnish with a sprig of fresh mint if desired.
We had this at a family friend's house for lunch one Sunday afternoon, and as I was drinking it, I was trying to figure out what was in it! This is such a refreshing and tasty drink-great for a crowd. My friend added a can of frozen lemonade concentrate to this along with some more water. Thank you for sharing.
This is the recipe that I have been looking for FOREVER! It was the whole reason for opening my account on recipezaar. I posted a forum and within a couple of hours, this recipe was suggested. My mom used to take my sister and I to a little bistro when we were younger. We would always order their fruit tea. This taste exactly like that. I did not change anything about the recipe. The amount that is listed is for 2 gallons worth of tea. The next time I make it, I will probably half the recipe if it is just for myself and family. Thank you so much for posting this recipe. Drinking it brought back so many wonderful childhood memories!
Delicious and refreshing! Perfect hot weather tea! I cut down the sugar to 1 cup just to save a few calories. 1 1/2 cups of sugar wouldn't be too much, especially if you're accustomed to drinking sweet tea. Even my kids enjoyed this. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
