Summertime, summertime, sum sum summertime! - Fruit Tea

Hello dear friends,
Anyone there still? I can't believe it has been so long since I have been on the site. Crazy! So much in life has happened I can't even begin to explain it all but I am back with a new computer to use, a fresh keyboard to break in and I am ready to roll. This summer has been crazy hot, I can't even believe it. We were at church camp last week and I thought I might die from all of the heat. So, I thought I would share one of my favorite drink recipe with some of you guys. So sit back and sip away! Happy summer!
Fruit Tea (apparently, it's a Southern thing!)

4-Family size tea bags
3/4 c sugar
1 can frozen pineapple orange juice concentrate, thawed
Fresh lime or orange slices or mint for garnish (optional)

Bring 4 cups of water to a boil. When it boils turn off the heat and stir in your sugar. Add the tea bags and let it steep in the water for at least 20 minutes.
After 20 minutes, pour your tea into a large pitcher along with the frozen juice concentrate and add approx 12 cups of water (depending on how strong or weak you like your drink. Garnish and serve over ice.
