7 Summer Tea

If I could think of one word to describe this tea it would be "refreshing!" I made this the other day and knew that Nate and I weren't going to drink it all so. . . I took it to school with me. . . and the car ride to school was a slight disaster. . . but this tea did brighten people's day! :-) Thanks Whitney for the great recipe! :-)
Summer Tea
2 quarts boiling water
8 small tea bags or 4 large tea bags
8 large mint leaves (i didn't use mint since Nate doesn't like it!)
2 cups sugar
1 (6 ounce) can frozen orange juice, undiluted
1 (6 ounce) can frozen lemonade, undiluted
Bring water to a boil. Add tea bags and boil one minute. Add mint leaves and steep 15 minutes. Add sugar to dissolve. Add orange juice and lemonade. Mix well. Add water to make 1 gallon.
Yields: 18 Servings
