  • 2 lemons

Thinly slice both lemons and 1 orange. Combine the sliced fruit with the rum in a bowl. Cover and let macerate at least 8 hours or overnight.

Combine the sugar and water in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the tea; let steep for 20 to 30 minutes. Strain into the rum mixture. Cover and chill.
