Garden Tea Punch

Ingredients
1
cup water
1/3
cup sugar
1 1/2
tablespoons snipped fresh mint
1/2
cup orange juice
1/4
cup lemon juice
1
cup strong brewed tea
1/2
1 bottle club soda, chilled
 
Fresh mint leaves or rose, calendula, or pansy petals (optional)
 
Ice cubes

Directions

  1. In a large stainless-steel or nonreactive saucepan combine the water, sugar, and snipped mint. Bring to boiling; remove from heat and let steep for 20 minutes. Place a sieve lined with 100-percent-cotton cheesecloth over a pitcher or small punch bowl. Strain mixture through the sieve; discard any solids.
  2. Add tea, orange juice, and lemon juice to the mixture, stirring to mix. Cover and chill for at least 2 hours or up to 24 hours. Just before serving, slowly pour chilled club soda into mixture; stir gently. If desired, sprinkle with mint leaves. Serve punch over ice.
