The Basics - Homemade Peach Iced Tea

The Basics - Homemade Peach Iced Tea

Peach and black tea is another flavor duo that is made for each other.  This is so refreshing on a sweltering summer day (and wow have we had those days this year!)


5 cups water (preferably filtered)
6 black teabags (I used decaf tea)

4 cups cold filtered water
1 cup peach syrup

Boil the water, remove from the burner and then steep the tea in the hot water for about 15 minutes.  In a large pitcher, add the cold water first and then pour in the steeped tea.  Add the peach syrup (see "note" below)
(NOTE:  If you do not have your own canned peach syrup then you may use the liquid from a jar of peaches).

Stir and serve immediately over ice.

  1. I save the liquid from canned fruits too, and use it for all sorts of stuff in the kitchen, especially in drinks. Peach tea is especially delicious.

  2. Being a walking-live teabag and a foodist, I will have to pin this recipe. I seriously don't know why I never try this at home considering that I love drinking iced tea. Thanks for sharing!


  3. I got very thirsty while reading this, you need to stop giving me all these wonderful things, I simply don't know what to try next! lol
