Combine the tea bags and 6 oz. boiling water. Let steep for 10 minutes. Remove and discard the tea bags. Add 6 oz. cold water, and refrigerate until well chilled.

Divide the peach slices and the tea among 4 tall glasses, and muddle. Top each glass with 1 oz. lemon juice, 1 oz. simple syrup, and 1-1/2 oz. cold water or, if using, the vodka. Add ice and stir. Garnish with the mint sprigs, and serve.


To make simple syrup, in a small saucepan over medium heat, combine 7 Tbs. granulated sugar and 7 Tbs. water. Bring just to a boil, stirring occasionally, until the sugar is dissolved. Set aside to cool to room temperature, then refrigerate until needed.
