Description

I’ve solved many of my own problems with Southern Sweet Tea and my porch swing. It’s refreshing and therapeutic.

Ingredients

  • 2 quarts Filtered Water, Divided
  • 4 bags (Family Size Bags) Tea
  • ¾ cups Sugar
  • 12 ounces, fluid Can Frozen Orange Juice Concentrate (thawed)
  • 12 ounces, fluid Can Frozen Lemonade Concentrate (thawed)
  • 48 ounces, fluid Can Pineapple Juice
  • 5 slices Fresh Orange For Garnish
  • 5 slices Fresh Lemon For Garnish

Preparation

Measure a quart of filtered water into a medium sauce pan. Heat water to near boiling. Add the family size tea bags to the near-boiling water. Cover the pan, remove the pan from heat, and steep tea for 15 minutes. Remove tea bags and add the sugar to the warm tea water. Stir to dissolve the sugar and add the remaining quart of filtered cold water to make 2 quarts brewed sweet tea.

In a gallon pitcher, add the brewed sweet tea and the thawed orange juice and lemonade concentrate. Stir gently until well blended then add the pineapple juice. Stir the pineapple juice into the tea mixture. Taste the tea. More water can be added to suit your taste. Some folks like this tea stronger and sweeter, others will prefer weaker tea. Serve in a pretty beverage dispenser with orange and lemon slices for garnish.

Refrigerate unused tea and stir before serving.
