LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - Refresh yourself with a glass of Chris's Orange Iced Tea. This drink not only tastes great but it's antioxidants can help reduce your risk of Alzheimer's and diabetes, plus help you have healthier teeth and gums and for that matter stronger bones.
1/4 cup tea or about 12 tea bags
Peel of 1 orange plus orange wedges for garnish
4 cups boiling water
3/4 cup orange juice
1/4 cup sugar or substitute
4 cups cold water
In boiling water steep loose tea bags and orange peel for about 3 to 5 minutes. Strain the tea and remove the tea bags and pour into a large pitcher. Stir in orange juice and sugar until the sugar is dissolved. Add cold water. Refrigerate until chilled, about 2 hours. Serve over ice with orange wedges, if so desired.
