ways to improve brewed decaf iced tea

I swore off relying on the powdered instant tea this summer, and began brewing my own iced tea. Since I can't handle caffeine, I've been using decaf tea bags,but it's somewhat lame, bland, and flat. I usually use 8 bags per 2-quart pitcher, about 1/2 c sugar and the juice of two lemons. Occasionally I'll pour in about 1/4 orange juice just for interest, lacks that bite of caffeinated iced tea. I'm willing to try other teas... Anybody got any recipes or methods they'd like to share?
