Peachy Iced Tea

A southern classic. Iced peach tea with a sprig of mint.
Though no sugar is added to the recipe, this tea is plenty sweet due to the addition of peach nectar. A best bet for the peach tea lover in your family!

8 Tbsp loose leaf black tea

1 tsp hibiscus

8 cups water

1 16oz bag frozen peach slices, thawed
or 3-4 medium size peaches, sliced
1 11.5oz-12oz can peach nectar

1/4 cup of peach liquor (optional)
Fresh Mint


1. Bring 4 cups of water to just below a boil.
2. Steep tea for 3-4 minutes in the hot water

3. Add 12 oz. of the peaches (or 3 peaches, sliced) to a blender and puree until it reaches a smooth consistency.

4. Combine the tea, peach puree, peach nectar, peach liquor (optional) and remaining slices of peaches to a 3-qt glass pitcher.

5. Serve over ice in tall glasses. Garnish with a spring of mint.

(Our tea recommendations are Ceylon Labookellie,
Assam 1947, Alishan Oolong or Darjeeling Gopaldhara Summer)
