  • Bring water to a boil - turn off heat, add tea bags and let steep for 6 minutes
  • Remove tea bags & cool tea to room temperature, about 45 minutes
  • Pour cooled tea into a large pitcher
  • Add apple juice, mint simple syrup and lemon juice
  • Refrigerate until you're ready to serve
  • To serve add sparkling water & pour punch into ice-filled glasses
  • Garnish with fresh mint
