Peach Ice Tea

Ingredients

  • 3 Orange Pekoe tea bags
  • 4 cups cold water
  • 5 (5-ounce) cans peach nectar (about 3 1/3 cups), chilled
  • 1/4 cup chilled simple syrup or to taste
  • 1 1/3 cups sugar
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • Peach slices for garnish

Instructions

  1. Place tea bags in a quart-size glass measure or heatproof bowl.

    In a saucepan bring water just to a boil and pour over tea bags. Steep tea 5 minutes and strain through a sieve into a heatproof pitcher. Cool tea and chill, covered, until cold, about 1 hour.

    Stir in nectar and syrup. Serve tea over ice in tall glasses and garnish with peach slices and basil sprigs.

    To make simple syrup: In a saucepan bring sugar and water to a boil, stirring, and boil until sugar is completely dissolved. Let syrup cool and chill, covered. Syrup may be made 2 weeks ahead and chilled, covered.
