Ingredients

  • 3 peaches
  • 6 cups water filtered
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • fresh mint leaves
  • 4 black tea bags optional
  • honey optional

Instructions

  • Start by cutting the peach in half, all the way around. Hold the peach and twist in opposite directions to loosen the pit, that is attached to the flesh. 
  • Pull the peach halves apart and remove the pit. Cut them into slices. 
  • Put the water to boil in a saucepan. Add the peach slices and the sugar and let the water come to a boil. 
  • Once it comes to a rolling boil, simmer it for 10-12 minutes. Add the lemon juice. Remove from heat. 
  • If you are using tea bags, mint, or honey, you can add it now. Keep it aside for the flavors to come together. Strain it into a pitcher. Your peach tea is ready! 
  • You can have it warm or chill it and serve with ice cubes for a delightful cold peach iced tea! Use peach slices, lemon slices, or mint as garnish.
