Iced "Sun" Tea


6-8 teaspoons black tea leaves (or similar dark tea in 4 tea bags)
1 quart cold water
Juice of 2 lemons
Juice of 1 orange
Sugar to taste
Orange and lemon half-moon slices to garnish


Combine tea and water in glass jar and stir. Cap jar and set in sun 2 to 3 hours, or at room temperature at least 6 hours, or in refrigerator overnight. Add lemon and orange juices and sugar [or you may pass the sugar or sugar substitute separately when serving]. Stir well or shake in jar. Strain into tall glasses. Garnish with lemon or orange slices placed on edges of the glasses.
Serves 4

As a Midwestern girl, I first discovered it in Cookeville, TN when I visited my former college roommate in her newly married life. Southerners have many versions of sweet tea, but this simple one I use for same day or next day visits from friends and relatives. A sunny window will do, if it's too cold outside right now! Maybe we can tease an earlier spring with this tea!
