8 bags black tea
4 bags mint tea
6 cups boiling water
¾ cup sugar
4 oranges, juiced
2 lemons, juiced
2 limes, juiced
In a 1-gallon pitcher, combine the black tea bags, mint tea bags and boiling water. Let steep for 5 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to remove the tea bags, squeezing them over the pitcher to extract as much liquid as possible.
Add the sugar, stirring until it is dissolved. Stir in the orange, lemon and lime juices, then add enough ice to fill the pitcher.
