Some like it cold as well as hot." Ingredients 5 small tea bags1/2 gallon plus 2 cups water3 teaspoons whole cloves2 cups sugar1 (12-ounce) can frozen orange juice concentrate Juice of 3 lemons Instructions Brew the tea in 1/2 gallon of the water, and set aside. Brew the cloves separately in 2 cups of the water until the water is amber-colored and has a strong clove scent. This brewing process will take longer than the tea. Strain the clove water. Stir the sugar into the tea until it dissolves. Add the orange juice, lemon juice, and clove water. Pour all into a gallon jug. Add enough additional water to fill the jug. Makes 1 gallon.
