DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the cloves with two cups of water in a small saucepan.
  • Bring the mixture to a boil, remove from heat and let cloves steep for at least 45 minutes, preferably 1 hour.
  • Bring two cups of the remaining water to a gentle boil in a small saucepan.
  • Add the tea bags, cover and remove from heat.
  • Let steep for 5 to 10 minutes.
  • Remove tea bags with out squeezing them.
  • Squeezing them will release more tannins into your tea and make it bitter.
  • Strain the clove water into a 2 quart container.
  • Add the steeped tea, orange juice, lemon juice, and sugar.
  • Stir until the sugar dissolves.
  • Add the remaining 4 cups of water and stir to combine.
  • Let cool.
  • then chill and serve over ice.
