Balancing the tannins in strong brewed tea with pieces of fresh summer fruit and sweet fruit nectar creates an exceptionally refreshing beverage. Tote it in a Thermos or ice-filled, tightly capped plastic pitcher to your picnic spot. For a variation, substitute blackberry juice, blueberry juice or bilberry nectar for peach nectar, and try blackberries for peaches.
Steep tea bags in boiling water for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags.
Combine brewed tea and nectar in large pitcher. Gently stir in 1 1/2 cups peaches. Refrigerate until chilled, at least 3 hours or overnight.
Put remaining peach slices into individual glasses. Add ice cubes, if using, and pour in tea. Garnish with mint sprig, if desired.
