    You know, Choclyt--the old tea-based punch recipes were the ones our mothers and grandmothers used to make. I rarely see a tea-based punch any more. This one sounds like the one I've been searching for. My mother (a true Southern lady) had written the recipe down for me many years ago, and somehow it was lost. I'm so glad to have found this one! Thanks!
