Squeeze lemons and oranges. Chill juices and reserve lemon hulls. Boil 2 quarts water, remove from heat, and add tea bags, mint leaves, and reserved lemon hulls. Steep 30 minutes. Strain, add sugar, and stir until dissolved. Refrigerate up to 24 hours.

When mixture is thoroughly cooled, add lemon, orange, and cherry juices, plus 1 1/2 quarts more cold water. Stir well, and freeze in 1 gallon ice cream freezer to slushy consistency.

Don't feel like freezing it, it's good over ice too.
