3 family-size (1 ounce) tea bags
2 cups fresh mint, loosely packed

(To make simple syrup, add 2 cups sugar to 1 cup water and boil slowly until clear- about 4 minutes.)

Bring water to a boil and add tea and mint. Remove tea bags after 10 minutes, but let mint continue to steep. When water has cooled to room temperature, strain into 2-gallon container. Add lemonade, peach nectar, and simple syrup to taste. Chill thoroughly and pour into punch bowl. Add chilled ginger ale and club soda just before serving. Makes approximately forty 4-ounce cups, or about 1 1/4 gallons.
