Blood Orange Vanilla Tea

Updated: Jun 1, 2019

Fresh citrus fruits are key ingredients in this special version of traditional sweet tea.

Recipe by Lauren McElwain

  • 1-2 vanilla-flavored teabags (try Harney & Sons Vanilla Comoro)

  • 5 cups water, divided

  • Juice of 7 blood oranges

  • Juice of 1 lemon

  • 1¼ cups sugar

In a mug or glass measuring cup, heat 1 cup water. Steep 1 or 2 tea bags in the hot water for 5-7 minutes.

In a decorative pitcher, combine hot tea with remaining water and the rest of the ingredients. Mix well. Allow to sit for a few hours for the best taste, and then serve cold in tall glasses over ice.
