*I like to place the glass punch bowl into a larger Silver punch bowl and pack the areas between bowls with crushed ice. The Tea Punch is then not watered down and tastes delighful.
* I suggest serving in tall stemmed water of tea glasses with an orange slice with a slit half way through slice and slipped over the edge of the glass. Very elegant for a warm day.
* Crushed ice or an ice cube is optional. You don't want to dilute this ambrosia
