Peach Iced Tea


Peaches!  I love them.  I love that you can make sweet desserts, savory chutney, spicy glazes for pork chops and loads of different drinks, smoothies and teas.   

Peaches were celebrated yesterday with "Grab a Peach" day.  So, I grabbed a few peaches and made some cool and refreshing Peach Iced Tea.

I actually used peach nectar that is found in the juice aisle of the grocery store. That means this peach tea can be enjoyed all year long.  I  pumped up the peach flavor with fresh sliced peaches to give my tea a really "peachy" flavor. 

So, grab some peaches up before their season is over!

8 regular black tea bags
3 1/2 cups water boiling water
1/2 cup sugar (or more to taste)
2 cups peach nectar (more to taste)
juice of one lemon
8 cups of ice cubes
2-3 fresh peaches sliced (sliced peaches can be frozen and placed as ice cubes too)

Garnish: mint leaves


Step 1:  Boil 3 1/2 cups water for tea and steep tea bags for 10 minutes.  Once tea is steeped, remove tea bags then add sugar and dissolved well.  Tea should warm now and not boiling hot.

Step 2:  In a large pitcher place ice cubes, peach nectar and lemon juice.   Pour steeped sweetened tea into pitcher slowly to melt some of the ice cubes and cool down. 

Step 3:  Garnish with fresh sliced peaches and mint sprigs.
