Tip Tuesday - Fruit Tea

This tea is absolutely delicious! I haven't made it yet, but I sure drank a lot of it at Dad and Lisa's house last weekend. Thanks to Lisa for passing along this gem. It's perfect for a brunch or a luncheon...or just for a hot summer afternoon.

Fruit Tea

Tea bags for 2 gallons tea (8 family tea bags)
1 1/2 quarts boiling water (6 cups)
2 cups sugar
1 48 oz can pineapple juice
1 12 oz can frozen orange juice concentrate
1 12 oz can frozen lemonade concentrate

Place tea bags in bowl or pitcher. Pour boiling water over tea bags. Add sugar, stirring to dissolve. Let tea bags steep in sugar water several hours or overnight. Discard tea bags. Pour tea into a large bowl. Add juices, stirring well. Pour equal amounts into two one gallon jugs. Add water to each to fill jug. Refrigerate. Shake (or stir) well before serving. The recipe makes 2 gallons.

It also freezes well. Just be sure to shake or stir before serving because everything settles to the bottom.
