5 Fruit Citrus Iced Tea
  • 6 black tea bags
  • 6 cups hot water
  • 1/4 cup sugar (or honey)
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/4 cup pink grapefruit juice
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tangerine, juiced
  • 1 lime, cut into wedges
  • additional fruit for garnish, if desired
  1. Pour hot water over tea bags in a heat-resistant pitcher. Allow to steep for 10-15 minutes. Stir in sugar until dissolved.
  2. Add orange, grapefruit, lemon and tangerine juice. Stir well. Chill for 1-2 hours.
  3. Fill glasses with crushed ice and lime wedges. Pour tea over ice and lime. Serve with additional fruit garnish (optional). Suggestion: orange wedges or lemon slices.
With this drink, I was inspired by the drink “Five Alive” by MinuteMaid, which combines orange, tangerine, lemon, lime, and grapefruit into one beverage. I added some iced tea and sugar (though feel free to use honey if you prefer), and came up with this 5 fruit concoction.
