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 have found that if you squeeze the tea bag that makes it bitter. Just remove don't squeeze.

  • I did mine as sun tea (don't have a big enough pan to boil the water). I love oranges in tea & lavender is one of my favorites.
    One has to really like lavender to use it in food & drink, plus that's an optional ingredient so unless you really like it, add to one glass and try it or leave out. =) - 7/29/15
