"Tea, mint, sugar, orange and lemon juices make this a quick and easy, refreshingly delicious drink on a hot summer's day, given to me by a true Southern lady. Goes great with Cajun or spicy foods too. Every time I serve this someone asks me for the recipe!"

I'm leaving a second review with a helpful note. We've found the tea tastes much better the second day after preparing. I try to let it in the refrigerator overnight and it's great the next day...

It's best to use no pulp orance juice and strain it before you freeze it.

Great tea, very refreshing! It makes approx. 2 quarts in case you wonder what size pitcher to use!

Really enjoyed this delightful tea/punch, made one minor adj. added 1/2 cup organic honey & cut back on the sugar content to half. Less sweet, with a milder flavor...perfect!

very nice! it's actually over a quart so cut back on the extra water at the end. next time I would add more lemon juice to "kick it up a notch". it is good as is, I think I will serve it at my n...

This is a truly wonderful recipe. Old fashioned mint really makes it special.

I served this at a baby shower & it was a very big hit. I immediately had requests for the recipe!

Refreshing and different. It got mixed reviews, with my party-goers but I really liked it.

I served this last week to guests and they really liked it. It has a great flavor and is really easy to make.
