Peach Sweet Tea
AUTHOR: Ashlyn Edwards | Belle of the Kitchen
This Peach Sweet Tea combines two delicious southern flavors all in one glass! Fresh brewed tea is sweetened with simple syrup and pureed peaches, then served over ice for a cool, refreshing treat!
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 5 minutes
TOTAL TIME: 15 minutes
SERVINGS: 8 SERVINGS
5-6 regular tea bags, (I use Lipton)
1 quart water
1 (15 oz) can peaches in juice, pureed in blender
1 quart cold water
1 cup water
1 cup granulated white sugar
Boil one quart of water in a large pot. Add tea bags and steep for 3-5 minutes. Remove tea bags and discard.
While tea is steeping, prepare simple syrup: in a separate small saucepan, combine one cup of water and one cup of sugar and bring to a boil. Stir until sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
Pour simple syrup into pot with tea and stir. In a heat-safe pitcher, combine the tea with pureed peaches, and one quart of cold water. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Serve tea over ice with fresh mint and peach slices if desired. Enjoy!
