- 2 cups water
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 8 peaches
- 1 tablespoon green tea leaves
- 10 mint leaves
For the peaches
Heat the water and sugar in a deep pan until the sugar dissolves. Bring to a boil, add the whole peaches, and allow them to poach over a low heat for 10 minutes. Lift them out with a slotted spoon and reserve.
Add the green tea leaves to the syrup while the syrup is still hot, remove from the heat, and allow to infuse for 10 minutes.
Strain the syrup, discarding the tea leaves.
Pour the syrup into a large serving bowl and add the mint leaves.
Slip the skins off the peaches and add them to the syrup. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve.
