  • 3 cups water
  • 1 navel orange, sliced into 1/4-inch slices
  • 3 inches stick cinnamon, broken
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 4 orange-flavored or black tea bags (decaffeinated, if you like)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup pomegranate juice
  • 2 -3 tablespoons sugar
  • 12 orange wedges or chunks
  • 6 lime wedges or chunks
  • 6 6-inch wooden skewers
  • Ice cubes


  1. In a medium saucepan, combine water, orange slices, cinnamon and cloves. Bring just to boiling; remove from heat. Add tea bags. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags; discard. Strain tea mixture through a fine mesh strainer; discard orange slices and spices.
  2. In a glass pitcher, combine strained tea mixture, orange juice, pomegranate juice and sugar, stirring to dissolve sugar. Cover and chill for at least 4 hours or up to 24 hours.
  3. To serve: Place 2 orange wedges and 1 lime wedge onto each skewer. Serve tea in glasses filled with ice cubes. Add fruit skewers to each glass.

The recipe doesn't mention it, but after making the mixture and bottling it. I assume it should be kept refrigerated before giving it as a gift (with a note on the bottle to keep it refrigerated until serving.)

Midwest Living food editor here. Yes, I would refrigerate this if you were saving it to give as a gift. Thanks for the clarification!

What would taste better, the orange flavored tea or the black tea? Is there that much of a noticeable difference?

Hello, food editor Hannah here! Because of all the fruit juice in this recipe, I don't think it's crucial to use the orange-flavor tea. I would just use whichever you have on hand (or whichever you'd prefer to have leftover tea bags of!).
