Fruit tea to wake the weary

Heat got you sitting down swatting at responsibilities nagging at you like so many mosquitoes?
And me. Make orange minted iced tea to get your mojo going. Steep 4 English Breakfast Tea Bags in 8 cups of boiling water (covered). In another little pan, dissolve 1/2 cup sugar in 3/4 cup of water, stirring just until you can no longer see the sugar. Add about 3 or 4 sprigs of fresh mint and simmer for 30 seconds. Allow to cool. Remove the tea bags and the mint sprigs and combine the sugar syrup and the tea. Add about a half cup of fresh squeezed orange juice and taste. Float some orange rounds in there along with some new fresh mint leaves and serve over ice. Fresh raspberries look pretty in the glass as well. If I already told you how to do this, forgive me; it’s the heat.
