DIRECTIONS

  • Using a 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup (must be microwaveable), add about 3 cups water. I prefer purified or bottled, room temp is best.
  • 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.
  • Place the measuring cup into microwave and cook for 3 minutes. Depending on your power output you may increase or decrease the time.
  • Let the tea steep for about 15 minutes.
  • While it is steeping, cut an orange into 3-4 slices, throwing out the ends.
  • Drop the slices into a 1 gallon pitcher.
  • Add the sugar, covering the slices pretty good.
  • (Sometimes I shake the pitcher to ensure the sugar coats the orange slices well)
  • 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.
  • Add water, not a full gallon as this will dilute the recipe. I use about 3/4 gallon. Stir well.
  • Pour over lots of ice and enjoy!
