Ingredients for Southern Fruit Tea:
- Family size tea bags (Luzianne is my favorite)
- Pineapple/orange juice concentrate
- Lemonade concentrate
How to make Fruit Tea:
- First, in a medium saucepan bring 2 cups water to a boil. Once the water is boiling steadily, add the tea bags and remove from heat. Then let it stand for 5 minutes.
- After the tea has steeped, remove all of the tea bags.
- Then add the sugar and stir it until it is all dissolved. After the sugar is completely dissolved, pour into a gallon sized pitcher.
- Next, stir in the pineapple/orange juice and lemonade concentrates.
- Then add the remaining water and stir everything well.
- After everything is mixed together, pour over ice to serve and enjoy!
