Sweet Tea, y'all!

I may or may not have a slight addiction to sweet tea (drools just writing the word).
Recently I made strawberry jam and in the process thought,
"I bet if I made peach syrup it would be bomb in some sweet tea"
I was right.

1 cup organic cane sugar
1 cup water 
3 organic rip peaches, sliced

3 cups water for boiling 
2 lipton tea bags 
2 cups (I think...?) cold water

Wash peaches with natural fruit wash  
Slice them thinly 
Bring sugar, peaches and water to a boil in sauce pan 
Lower heat and mush peaches with a wooden spoon
Once the sugar is dissolved remove from heat and let sit about 20 minutes
Boil 3 cups of water in separate pan for tea 
Once boiling, remove from heat, add 2 family sized lipton tea bags, cover and let it sit for about 6 minutes 
Pour sugar into pitcher (this is totally preference but I do about a cup!)
Pour hot tea over sugar and stir until dissolved 
Fill pitcher to top with cold water 
Pour peach syrup into a mason jar over a fine mesh strainer
Pour tea over ice into glass
Add as much peach syrup as you like 
(and if your Mitch, add more sugar!! Ha!)
