Busy Iced Tea Summer

It is a very busy summer for our family.  
The kids are enjoying cooling the pool, 
and the adults have are cooling off with lots of iced tea.
I am taking a short break from blogging to spend time
out and about with the family.
Below is a recipe I previously posted.
It is a refreshing summer tea beverage.
My entire family loves it.

Tea Punch 
1 quart water
7 regular-size tea bags (or loose-leaf)
1 ½ cup sugar
1 (6 oz) can frozen orange juice, thawed and undiluted
1 (6 oz) can frozen lemonade, thawed and undiluted
10 cups water
Bring 1 quart water to a boil.  Remove from heat; add tea bags.  Cover and steep 5 minutes. Remove tea bags.  Add sugar and stir until dissolved. Combine tea and remaining ingredients; chill.  Serve punch over ice.
Yield: 1 gallon
Note:  I freeze some of the punch into ice cubes if serving in a pitcher or in a ring if serving in a punch bowl.
