Fill an ice-cube tray with orange juice and freeze, un- covered, until solid, about 4 hours. Orange ice cubes may be made 1 week ahead and kept frozen in a plastic bag. In a pitcher combine tea bags and water and let tea stand at room temperature 4 hours. Remove tea bags and chill tea, covered, until cold, about 30 minutes. Cut half of lemon and lime into slices and squeeze remaining halves into tea. Stir syrup and all fruit slices into tea. Serve tea over orange juice ice cubes in tall glasses. To make the simple syrup: In a saucepan bring sugar and water to a boil, stirring, and boil until sugar is completely dissolved. Let syrup cool and chill, covered. Syrup may be made 2 weeks ahead and chilled, covered. Makes about 2 C.
