Ingredients

  • ½ cup of loose black tea or 12 tea bags
  • 4 fresh, ripe peaches
  • 12 cups of water, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup of sugar

Directions

Pit, peel, and slice three of the peaches, then purée them. Push the pulp through a strainer. Set aside.

Place the tea, baking soda, and sugar in a heatproof container and add six cups boiling water. Let the tea steep six minutes, then strain and discard the tea leaves or remove tea bags.

Fill a pitcher partway with ice, then pour in strained purée and the remaining six cups of water. Pour in tea, stirring with a long-handled wooden spoon to combine.

Slice the remaining peach and float in glasses filled partway with ice. Pour tea and serve.

Peach Cooking Tip
