  • 2 cups boiling water
  • 2 cups 100% fruit juice, any flavor
  • 1 quart cold water
  • Sugar, if desired(you probably won't need any)


Place the tea bags in a half-gallon pitcher. Pour the boiling water over the tea bags and let the tea steep for 10 minutes.

Remove the tea bags. Pour in the fruit juice and the cold water; stir the tea. Taste it to see if sugar is needed.

Chill before serving, or serve immediately by pouring over lots of ice.
