Cool and refreshing beverage I developed to make use of the fresh mint I planted this summer. In memory of summer afternoons with Aunt Pat in Waco, TX.
- 4 cups boiling water
- 1⁄3-1⁄2 cup fresh mint leaves, crushed
- 4 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 4 tea bags
- 1 -1 1⁄2 cup peach nectar (to taste)
- fresh mint sprig, for garnish
- Crush mint leaves with sugar and lemon juice; pour boiling water over mint leaves and tea bags.
- Let steep to desired taste; drain tea bags.
- Mix in peach nectar.
- Pour over ice in tall glasses and garnish with fresh mint.
What a wonderfully delicious and refreshing summertime tea! It was very much enjoyed on this hot August day. Thank you, The Finicky Chef! Made for the Magic of Herbs in the photos forum.
