Cinnamon-Spiced-Iced-Tea-500x749

 

 

  • 8 cups filtered water
  • 2 (10 cms) cinnamon sticks
  • ½ cup sugar
  • 3 large or family sized black tea bags
  • ¾ cup orange juice
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 orange, sliced into 6 slices (optional)
  • Cinnamon sticks for garnish (optional)
  • Ice for serving
  1. Place the water, cinnamon sticks, and sugar in a large saucepan and place over high heat. Bring the mixture to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes to allow the cinnamon sticks to release their flavor.
  2. Remove the water from heat, add the tea bags, cover, and allow to steep for 5 minutes. Remove the tea bags and discard.
  3. Pour the tea mixture into a 2-quart pitcher and stir in the orange and lemon juice.
  4. Chill the tea in the refrigerator until cold, about 2 hours.
  5. Pour over ice, garnish with orange slices and cinnamon sticks if desired, then serve.
