Ingredients

  • 6 cups of cold water
  • 5 tea bags
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 cloves
  • 1 peel for an orange
  • juice of an orange
  • agave nectar, maple syrup etc... sweeten to taste

Instructions

  • Pour cold water into a large glass pitcher.
  • Add the teabags or loose tea
  • Add the cloves, orange peel and cinnamon sticks.
  • Leave the jug to stand at room temperature for an hour to start the brewing process.
  • Place the mixture in the refrigerator and allow to steep for 8-12 hours
  • Once the tea is ready, strain if off add the orange juice and sweeten to taste.

Notes

  • If using loose tea feel free to use a infuser or tea filter.
  • Add more teabags if you want a STRONGER tasting tea.
  • Keep in mind that ice cubes will dilute the taste  so adjust the taste/tea if needed
  • Use faux ice cubes if you want that extra chilled beverage without compromising the taste.
  • Use a vegetable peeler to remove the orange peel and make sure the pith isn't attached to it. Some boiling water helps to shift it with a knife to scrape it off.
  • For a more IN DEPTH flavour DO NOT strain just use a filter jug.
  • This pitcher serves around 6-8 glasses depending on the size of the glass you use.
  • Add more fruit if you wish, lime, lemon, apple strawberry the list is endless.
