  1. Step 1

    Tip the orange peel, rosemary, sugar and 100ml water into a small saucepan and bring to a simmer. Ensuring the rosemary sprigs are submerged, cook over a low heat until the mixture has thickened slightly, about 6-8 mins. Turn off the heat. Leave to infuse for 1 hr.
  2. Step 2

    Put the teabags in a large heatproof jug and pour over 1 litre boiling water from the kettle. Steep for 4 mins, then discard the teabags. Leave to cool completely.
  3. Step 3

    Stir the orange juice along with the prepared syrup into the cooled tea. Serve in highball glasses over ice. Add rosemary sprigs to garnish, if you like.
