Peach Iced Tea

This is a variation of a recipe printed on a 10-pound bag of Domino Pure Cane Sugar. It's refreshing and delicious!
  • 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.
