Peach Iced Tea
Peach Iced Tea with fresh, ripe peaches and delicious tea with sugar to sweeten up your day. So simple to make and so refreshing with these warmer days ahead!
Come May, peaches will be in season and I will be making peach everything! One of my favorite recipes for fresh peaches is this Peach Iced Tea. Since moving to Cincinnati, I have become a big fan of sweet tea. Although, I still think people out this way like their tea a bit too sweet. I typically will order half sweet/half unsweetened in restaurants. You can adjust the sugar level a little bit on this recipe. 1 cup is my max sugar level I would ever go for this and it is sweet for sure. If you do not like sweet tea, cut back to maybe 1/4 cup sugar and let the peaches do the sweetening.
What type of tea should you use? I think anything will work. I wouldn’t go for anything fancy. I buy the tea bags labeled for iced tea use and they work perfectly. All the wonderful flavors come from the peach reduction and is just so delicious. I don’t think you could ruin it from the “wrong” tea.
For your peach reduction, you will be simmering 3 sliced peaches with some sugar and water for 30 minutes. Give the peaches a good stir and squish down the fruit every once in awhile. Send the mixture through a strainer to remove all the chunks and skin and you are done. I let the tea and peach reduction cool down before adding to the pitcher. Pour over ice and serve.
This Peach Ice Tea recipe is really fantastic to serve for guests. Everyone will be saying how great this fresh tea is…. you don’t have to tell them how incredibly easy it was.
