This refreshing tonic combines green tea with two popular Indian beverages—freshly squeezed pomegranate juice and fennel-seed tea.

  1. 8 cups water
  2. 1/4 cup fennel seeds (from a 1.8-ounce jar)
  3. 8 green-tea bags
  4. 1/2 cup sugar
  5. 1 quart pure pomegranate juice
  6. 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  7. 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  8. 1 navel orange, thinly sliced
  1. In a large saucepan, bring the water and fennel seeds to a boil. Reduce the heat to low; simmer for 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, add the tea bags and let steep for 10 minutes. Strain the tea into a heatproof bowl. Stir in the sugar and let cool. Add the pomegranate juice, lemon juice and lemon and orange slices. Serve in tall glasses over ice.
