"A refreshing drink on a hot summer day. Add club soda and some rum for an adult-only version! Great to make up a few batches ahead of time and keep in the fridge for large gatherings. It goes quickly! Garnish punch bowl with mint, lemon, and lime slices if desired."

Steep tea until desired strength is reached, 15 to 20 minutes. Pour steeped tea through a strainer into a large mason jar, squeezing excess liquid from tea bags. Discard mint and tea bags.
  2. Stir sugar into tea until dissolved; add lemon juice, lime juice, and vanilla extract. Stir cold water into tea mixture. Place lid on the jar and refrigerate until completely chilled, 2 hours to overnight.
  3. Fill a punch bowl or drink dispenser with ice and add tea.

My family loved this drink! I only used 3 lemons and 3 limes. I didn't want it to be too tart and I am glad I did. Also, I used green tea. It's very refreshing and smells so good too.

Interesting taste. I believe this will be popular with the adults since it's not overly sweet.

I've made this MANY times for large groups. It's a huge hit.

Refreshing tea with a bit of tartness, and not overly sweet. Would make again.
