peach teaOne of my favorite summertime beverage is sweet ice tea, but adding fresh peaches makes it amazing. The fresh lemon makes the peaches pop with flavor. This is so delicious especially on those hot summer days; garnished with some fresh cut mint from the garden… heaven in a glass.


5 individual tea bags or 3 family size

5 cups of boiling water

1 ½ pounds of fresh peaches, peeled, pitted and sliced

½ cup sugar

1 lemon, juiced

5 cups of ice cubes

1 cup fresh peaches, sliced

Fresh mint for garnish


Steep tea bags in boiling water for 5 minutes; set aside add sugar and cool. Meanwhile puree the peaches and push pulp through a strainer. Add the strained puree to a ½ gallon pitcher add lemon juice, top with ice and pour tea over the top; stir. Cover and chill in refrigerator until needed, stirring in fruit just before serving. Garnish with fresh mint.

Note: Depending on your desire and the sweetness of the peaches, more or less sugar can be used.
