Iced Nectarine Green Tea
Prep Time:5 mins
Cook Time:10 mins
Total Time:15 minutes
4 green tea bags
1/4–3/4 cups sugar
3 ripe nectarines, pitted and chopped
mint sprigs for garnish
Place the green tea into a large (at least 4 cup) container and wet with 1/4 cup of cold water.
Bring 4 cups of water to a boil, then pour over the wet tea bags. Let steep for 1-2 minutes, then squeeze and remove the tea bags.
In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine the sugar with 1 cup of water.
While the sugar water heats, puree the nectarines with a blender (I used my hand blender). Once the sugar has dissolved completely, add the nectarine puree to the saucepan.
Cook for 10 minutes, letting it gently bubble but not go too crazy. Stir occasionally. The mixture should be thick and syrupy.
Let everything cool before combining, stirring well, and adding ice.
Serve with mint sprigs and extra sliced nectarines.
