Citrus Tea Punch

I usually double this.  Prepare this punch up to one day ahead.

6 cups water, divided
1/2 cup sugar
3 whole cloves
2 family-sized tea bags
1 (3-inch) cinnamon stick
1 cup orange juice
1 (6-ounce) can thawed lemonade concentrate, undiluted
Lemon slices (optional)

Combine 4 cups water and sugar in a heavy saucepan; bring to a boil.
Cook until sugar dissolves; remove from heat. Add cloves, tea bags,
and cinnamon; steep 5 minutes. Strain mixture through a sieve into a
pitcher; discard solids. Add remaining 2 cups water,juice, and
lemonade concentrate; stir well. Chill. Serve over ice, and garnish
with lemon slices, if desired.

Yield: 12 servings (serving size: about 2/3 cup)
