Fruited Iced Tea

This is adapted from Mrs Swindell's Famous Fruited Iced Tea, a recipe found on SOAR, original source The Dave Nichol Cookbook. The original recipe required freshly-squeezed orange juice, but with the quality of commercial juices available today, a good brand of orange juice is fine. Try to use a reasonably good-quality brand of teabags in this - PG Tips is OK, Tetley's isn't. I don't like over-strong tea, so I have reduced the number of teabags used in this recipe from 6 to 4. I also use less sugar than the original. A friend who normally hates tea likes this a lot.

Makes 1.5 litres (6.5 cups)

Make the tea - boil the water and pour it over the teabags. Steep for 5 minutes, then remove the teabags and add the sugar. Stir well to dissolve the sugar, then leave the tea to cool.

Once the tea is cool, add the orange and pineapple juices and chill well. It's best left overnight for the flavours to blend together. I like to keep this in a bottle in the fridge so it can be gently shaken to mix before serving.
