  • 2 oranges
  • 4 cups boiling water
  • 5 bags Tea, regular or decaf
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • ice cubes


  • Using a vegetable peeler, work around the orange removing the orange rind only in a spiral without getting the white pith from the orange. It's really a lot easier than it sounds using a peeler.
    Add the orange rind and tea bags to a large pitcher, add the boiling water. Cover and let the tea steep 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags. Add the brown sugar, stir to melt the sugar. Allow the tea to cool 
    To serve ...remove the orange peel and pour over ice. Garnish with orange slices if desired. Store remaining tea in the refrigerator.
