Orange Pekoe tea blended with water, apricot nectar and simple syrup creates a tasty refreshing Apricot Iced Tea.
For the tea:
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
For the simple syrup:
1-1/3 cups sugar
1-1/4 cups water
Put tea bags in a heat proof 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 dissolves. Let syrup cool and chill, covered. In the interest of time, you can prepare the syrup two weeks ahead of time. Simply chill it, covered, until ready to use.
