4 cups cold water
4 bags black tea or decaf tea of your choice
3-4 ripe peaches for peach nectar
Plenty of ice cubes
Extra peaches peeled, pitted, and sliced, for garnish
Mint sprigs, for garnish
For Sun Tea:
Fill a large glass jar with four cups of water and add four tea bags then put on the lid. Place in a sunny spot outside for about 2-3 hours until the water turns a “tea” color.
For Brewed Tea:
Bring four cups of water to a boil in a saucepan. Remove from the heat, add four tea bags, cover, and steep for 5 minutes. Let cool to room temperature.
Peel and slice 3-4 ripe peaches and place in a blender or Cuisinart to blend. Add nectar mixture to the tea, stir and pour into a pitcher through a fine colander or cheesecloth.
Serve tea in ice filled glasses garnished with peach slices and a sprig of mint.
