Peach iced tea

A summertime favorite that is great served over ice or mixed with lemonade.

Ingredients

  • 4 bags peach tea (we like Celestial Seasonings' Country Peach Passion)
  • 2 bags black tea (We like P.G. Tips)
  • Agave syrup, to taste
  • Lemon slices, for serving

Directions

Bring 4 cups water to a boil. Pour water over the tea bags in a large heatproof mixing bowl. Let steep 6 minutes before removing the tea bags. While the tea is still hot, add a squirt or two of the agave. I usually squirt it into a small figure-eight 2 times and that is the perfect amount for lightly-sweet tea. Add four cups cold water.

When the tea is cool enough to handle, pour into your pitcher of choice and chill. Add lemon slices just before serving and, if you remember, pop your serving glasses in the freezer for a few minutes just before pouring. A chilled glass makes all the difference.

Peach Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Peach Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
