Minty Peach Tea

1 box Celestial Seasonings County Peach Passion Tea
1 large handful of fresh mint
6 Tablespoons Agave Nectar (or to taste)
1 liter hot water (approximately)
1 liter cold water

You'll also need a large container for the tea (preferably glass or porceline) and something to hold the mint.

Wash the mint, tear it up a little and wrap it in something you can drop in the hot water. Try stuffing it in a piece of cheesecloth wrapped with cooking twine. I use paper tea filters from

I use a very large, glass Ice Tea container that I got a Crate & Barrel. If you use glass, but a spoon in there before adding the hot water to prevent the glass from cracking.

Add the mint (wrapped in cheesecloth or what every you use), 10 tea bags and 1 liter (or a kettle full) of very hot water to the glass container. Let sit for about 20-30 minutes.

Remove the tea bags and mint and add in the agave nectar. Taste and add more agave if you like your tea sweeter. Stir well.

About about the same amount of cold water (about another 1-2 liter depending on your taste). Sort in the refrigerator. Serve with lots of ice.
