Ingredients


Tips

If you like a strong tea, steep for 1 hour or add 2 more tea bags.
Limes, lemons, and oranges are equally delicious in this tea. Adjust the sweetness as desired.
Like lavender? Add a sprig or two to this tea for a burst of floral freshness.


Directions

Bring 16 ounces of water to boil in a saucepan, then add the oranges and tea. Stir, remove from heat, and allow to steep for 30 minutes. Strain and add 16 more ounces of cold water, then serve over ice.

Refrigerate for up to one week.

Serving Size: Makes 4 eight ounce servings.

    I liked the tea, but am not sure about the lavender. It is one of my favorite aromas.....but not while I am drinking it. - 6/26/12

    i am glad i only made a half batch so that i only wasted 99 cents on an orange and 3 tea bags.
    yuch! bitter! soapy! (i think it tastes how yardleys lavender soap smells)
    but it made the house smell good. 3 hours later i can still smell the lavender - 7/14/12

  • I am growing Lavender in my front yard. I was wonder what to do with it. It sounds like a nice tea. I might try it. I do drink tea, but I make so many home made foods that I try not to overload myself. Thanks - 8/5/12

    steep the tea for 30 minutes? I can't stand it when it gets bitter after steeping too long. If I make this I will make the tea in the fridge - steep it overnight - then maybe boil the lavender and fruit and add it. - 7/12/12

    I am certain this will taste very good I got some lavender candy recently out of curiosity. It was a different but not unpleasant sensation. - 6/26/12
