    • 6 black tea bags or 3 Tbsp. loose black tea
    • ½ cup sugar
    • ¾ cup fresh orange juice
    • ¾ cup pineapple juice
    • ½ cup plus 2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice
    • 1½ cups bourbon (such as Buffalo Trace)
    • Mint sprigs and lemon wheels (for serving)


    1. Brew tea in 2 cups boiling water in a teapot or measuring glass 5 minutes. Remove tea bags; discard. Add sugar to tea; stir to dissolve. Let cool 10 minutes, then transfer to a pitcher.
