Rania’s Minty Fruity Iced Tea

2 oranges
2 to 3 plums
8 tea bags (I use a dark tea for this recipe)
Simple Syrup (see recipe below)
1 lemon
Sprigs of fresh mint

Fill a large pitcher with 2 quarts of cold water. Quarter oranges, squeeze juice into pitcher as well as add the peels. Pit and cut plums into wedges and add to the pitcher. Cut the strings off the tea bags and mix the bags into the liquid. Let tea steep in the refrigerator 8 hours or overnight, stirring occasionally.

When ready, remove orange peel and tea bags from pitcher. To the tea, stir in the simple syrup until to taste. Cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice from 1 half into the tea. Slice the other half into rounds and add to the tea. Serve over ice and garnish with fresh mint.

Simple Syrup
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water
In a small saucepan heat the sugar and water and bring to a boil. When the sugar is completely dissolved remove from heat and cool to room temperature. Refrigerate, covered, for up to 1 week.
