ORANGE ICED TEA

2 large oranges
4 cups boiling wate
5 black tea bags
Ice cubes
honey to taste

Use a vegetable peeler to peel the oranges, being careful not to include the white part. Keep peel in a continuous piece if possible as you don't want to deal with a lot of little pieces of peel.  (Eat the oranges or use sections or slices in the tea.)

In a large heat proof pitcher, pour the boiling water over the tea bags and the orange peel; cover pitcher and allow tea to steep for 5 minutes.  Using a large slotted spoon, remove the tea bags.  Leave the peel in the tea and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes.

To serve, remove the peel and pour over ice into glasses.  Use honey to sweeten to suit your taste.
A great treat on hot summer days!
