Russian Tea

About 8 cups

1-1/2 cups water
3 medium oranges, sliced
1 large lemon, sliced
2 cinnamon sticks, about 3 inches long
1 teaspoon whole cloves, optional
2 cups pineapple juice
1/2 cup sugar or equivalent alternative sweetener
4 cups steeped black tea

Combine water, fruit, and spices in a heavy, non-aluminum saucepan. Bring to a boil, and allow to boil for five minutes. Remove from heat. Pour the mixture through a large mesh strainer into a bowl or container; press the fruit with a heavy spoon (or your hand) to expel all juice. Discard the fruit and spice pulp. Add the pineapple juice and sugar, and stir well. Pour into a large teapot or heat-proof pitcher or bottle. Pour in the steeped tea and stir well. Serve hot.
