Sometimes the occasion is so special that only drinking champagne will do.
- Pour the boiling water onto the tea bags in a large heatproof container. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Remove tea bags. Add the sugar, lemon and lime juice, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Chill.
- Just before serving, stir in the club soda and champagne.
- Makes about 5-1/2 quarts.
