Servings: varies   Prep Time: 5   Cook Time: a couple hours  

Ingredients

1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup sliced, crushed peaches


water

tea bags

1 broken cinnamon sticks

several whole cloves

Directions

Make a syrup of water, sugar and sliced, crushed peaches in a small pot; boil on high until the sugar is dissolved. Let syrup cool then strain liquid to remove peaches. Meanwhile, prepare sun tea by adding several tea bags (depending on strength desired) to 1/2 gallon water. Place broken cinnamon sticks and cloves in a spice ball (or tie up a small cheesecloth bag) and place in the water with the tea bags along with the peach syrup. When sun tea is ready, remove the spice ball. Chill and pour over ice. Garnish with sliced lemons if desired.
