Apricot Iced Tea

I have had this recipe for a long time and just found it again. My notes on it says “Gourmet 1995” so I am thinking someone posted it from Gourmet magazine.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: Makes about 2 cups


3 orange pekoe tea bags
4 cups water
5 (5 1/2-ounce) cans apricot nectar (about 3 1/3 cups), chilled
1/2 cup chilled simple syrup, or to taste


To make the tea:
Put tea bags in a heatproof pitcher.
In a saucepan bring water just to a boil and pour over tea bags. Steep tea 5 minutes and remove tea bags. Cool tea and chill, covered, until cold, about 1 hour.
Stir in nectar and syrup. Serve tea over ice in tall glasses.

To make the 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.

    What exactly is nectar? How is it different from straight apricot juice? (Like I made today with the steam juicer from my apricots.)

    What you made today is clear juice. Nectar includes the pulp, which in the case of apricots is velvety – still a juice but it’s opaque and has some viscosity. Apricot nectar is really easy to make if you have some type of food strainer. And some recipes calling for nectar could be used with apricot juice I’m sure – like this tea.

    Okay, thanks. Yeah, that’s what I’m thinking, I could just replace the nectar with the juice for tea or probably lots of other stuff.
