Recipe: Peach Iced Tea
Summer’s not over yet… so enjoy a refreshing Peach Iced Tea!
- 1/2 cup fresh mint leaves
- 4 tablespoons granulated sugar (Domino Pure Cane Sugar, of course)
- 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 8 cups cold water
- 8 tea bags (individual serving size)
- 3 cups peach nectar
Using the back of a spoon, crush the mint leaves with the sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl. Set aside.
In a medium saucepan or tea kettle, over high heat, bring the cold water to a boil. Pour over the tea bags and mint mixture in a heat-proof pitcher or container. Stir briefly. Allow to steep 4 to 5 minutes or until desired strength.
Strain tea into another container and add peach nectar. Refrigerate until cold. To serve, pour into ice-filled glasses. Garnish with peach wedge and mint sprig, if desired.
Makes 2 quarts.
Note: If you like your tea less sweet, you may reduce the sugar to as little as 1 tablespoon.
