Bring 3 cups water to a boil in a medium pot. Add the tea bags, take the pot off the heat, and steep for 4 minutes. Remove the tea bags and stir in the sugar until dissolved. Cool.
In a pitcher, muddle together the cherries, maraschino cherries and vodka. Add the tea and stir to combine. Serve over ice in glasses or teacups. Garnish with more maraschino cherries.
