Hot days, call for peach iced tea!
On several occasions when I’ve had friends over for lunch and I made this peach iced tea, my guests were impressed.
“This is so good! You made this?”
Yup, and it’s pretty dang easy to make too.
It’s mainly about the presentation that tends to make this refreshing drink a stunner.
This peach iced tea is a take on the classic but with a peach twist.
I’ve made this tea with both black peach tea and herbal peach tea.
I slightly prefer the herbal version, plus it’s caffeine-free.
When peaches are in season, which is May through September, I always have some on hand.
Though I love eating my stone fruit as a snack or with breakfast, it’s nice to have a recipe that allow’s you to use them up before they go bad.
Peaches are packed with nutrient and antioxidants.
This pretty and fuzzy fruit also offer small amounts of magnesium, phosphorus, iron, and some B vitamins.
B vitamins have a direct impact on your energy levels, brain function, and cell metabolism.
I love making a big batch of this iced tea and keeping it in the fridge for up to 1 week.
You can also make this into a cocktail by adding rum!
Brew The Tea
In a large pot, heat up 8 cups of filtered water and allow it to come to a boil.
While waiting for the water to come up to a boil, wash and slice up 1 peach.
Using a fork, lightly mash up the peach slices and set aside.
Once at a boil, turn off the heat and add the tea bags, honey and mashed peach slices.
Stir until the honey is dissolved then cover the pot and allow to steep for about 20-30 minutes.
If you are using black tea, only steep for 5-8 minutes, or the time listed on the package instructions.
After the tea has steeped, strain the tea using a fine mesh strainer and allow to cool completely. About 20-30 minutes.
Once cooled, refrigerate until you are ready to serve.
