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.
