Minted Peach Sweet Tea



For tea

8 black tea bags
64 ounces water

For peach simple syrup

1 cup of granulated sugar
1 cup of water
3 peaches, sliced
2 handfuls mint leaves, divided


Step 1

In a small sauce pan stir together water and sugar for simple syrup. Heat syrup on a medium heat until simmering. Remove syrup from heat and add in 1/3 of the sliced peaches and a handful of mint leaves. Cover pot with a lid and steep syrup for 30 minutes. Drain syrup with a colander and set aside.

Step 2

In a medium sauce pan, heat 25 ounces of the water for tea. Bring the water to a simmer and add in tea bags. Steam bags for 5 minutes and then discard the tea bags. In a large pitcher combine the rest of the water, concentrated tea, peach syrup, peach slices, and mint.

Step 3

Stir well and refrigerate until chilled. Serve over ice. Do not add ice into the pitcher of tea or it will water the batch down.
