Strong tea, 12 quarts, Apollinaris, 12 pints, Granulated sugar, 12 cups, Lemon-juice, 3 pints, Chipped, and lump ice.
In making the tea, allow at least 4 teaspoonfuls of good tea to each quart of boiling water. Let it stand for 10 minutes after it is made, then strain off the liquor from the leaves.
When it is cold, put a large lump of ice in a punch-bowl, and pour in the tea. Mix all the other ingredients, stir in, mixing well together, and keep it in a cold place, replenishing the serving bowl with this, and with ice, as required. This should make about 5 gallons.
A handful of mint leaves, floating on the surface of the serving-bowl is a pleasant addition to the flavor, and looks attractive.
Other fruits may be cut up and added.
