A summertime favorite that is great served over ice or mixed with lemonade.
- 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
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.
How to Make Simple Fresh Homemade Peach Tea
Peach tea is the quintessential taste of summer. There’s no better way to drink peach tea in the summertime than over ice. If life is better with tea, summer is better with peach iced tea!
My family drinks iced tea by the gallon all year round, usually sweetened. But in the summertime, when I start adding fruits to the iced tea, I tend to lessen the sugar a little bit. Fresh fruit is sweet enough.
Peach Iced Tea
This is a variation of a recipe printed on a 10-pound bag of Domino Pure Cane Sugar. It's refreshing and delicious!
- Using the back of a spoon, crush the mint leaves with the sugar and lemon juice in a small bowl. Set aside.
- In a medium saucepan or tea kettle, over high heat, bring the cold water to a boil. Pour over the tea bags and mint mixture in a heat-proof pitcher or container. Stir briefly. Allow to steep 4 to 5 minutes or until desired strength.
- Strain tea into another container and add peach nectar. Refrigerate until cold. To serve, pour into ice-filled glasses. Garnish with peach wedge and mint sprig, if desired.
- Makes 2 quarts.
Note: If you like your tea less sweet, you may reduce the sugar to as little as 1 tablespoon. Readers may want to also read Patricia Mitchell's article, Perfect Iced Tea.

Fresh Peach Sweet Iced Tea
It's gettin' to be southern peach time and we've got the early Georgia peaches already showing up in our markets down here in south Mississippi. The first batch I picked up were nice and ripe and supremely juicy, so I thought it'd be a good time to use some for peach tea.
I love a good iced tea and for a change, all manner of fruited iced teas, with peach being right there at the top of the list, though I've had some that were not all that tasty and kind of uninspiring and blah. The secret for me that many of them leave out - besides using only fresh peaches, rather than a commercial peach nectar - is also including some freshly squeezed lemon juice.
I think that fresh lemon juice just makes the flavor of the peaches pop and Meyer lemons, which are much sweeter than their more acidic cousins, are an excellent lemon to use for drinks if you can get your hands on some. I happened to have some in the fridge, so I used two of them, but good ole grocery store acidic lemons are perfectly fine to use too of course. Just be sure to test this the first time with just one of those, before adding in the juice of a second lemon. You may only want one acidic lemon, again depending on the sweetness of your peaches. Summer peaches tend to be sweeter than these early ones.
I also love using simple syrup in summer beverages, so I pretty much make up a batch and keep it stored in a mason jar in my fridge to have on hand anytime the urge strikes say, for a homemade sno-cone, or a cherry limeade, or maybe one of those iced tea cocktails. Of course, if you need to use artificial sweeteners, there's not a single thing wrong with making that substitution, and, if you aren't up to making a simple syrup, regular granulated sugar is just fine.
By the way, if you love peaches but hate the peeling part of them, let me tell you about your new best friend. in case you haven't already met. A soft skin peeler.
Couple of swipes and easy peachy! Okay. I know that was corny, but seriously, this gadget makes such an easy job of peeling peaches, it's fast and there's no having to fool around with that whole boiling and shocking thing. It's a perfect gadget for tomatoes too.
Admittedly the peeler doesn't get a huge workout in the winter months, but, with the early fruits and veggies we're getting in abundance, I've already used it numerous times this spring. Not only does it save time, but it cuts away such a tiny and thin strip of skin that you reserve more of the fruit, so there's much less waste. It's become one of my favorite gadgets! I purchased mine through Amazon last year using my Prime Membership free shipping, while I was ordering some other kitchen stuff. You can purchase through my store here, where I share all of my favorite gadgets, cooking tools and cookbooks, or look for it at your local home goods store next time you're out and about. If you love soft skin fruits like peaches and tomatoes, you will love having this gadget this summer.
Early peaches are generally speaking on the smaller side, so instead of giving you peaches in numbers, I've written them in by the pound, so be sure to use that scale at your market. Remember those? I use them, but I rarely see anybody else using them. Yesterday this lady was piling a ton of these huge first of the season Creole tomatoes in a bag that I wondered if she realized they were still priced a little high at $1.69 a pound! She never even looked at the scale. I also have a counter scale at home I purchased during one of my past lives of dieting and I actually do still use it a lot. Another handy gadget. Hey, if I had one of those big dream walk-in pantries, I'd probably have one just like this in there to be honest!
This next step is optional - if you don't mind a lot of pulp in your drinks. Personally, I like to push it through a mesh strainer to get most of the puree, but leave behind the larger pieces of pulp. I like a little pulp with some drinks, but not too much. It's a texture thing for me.
From there it's just piling it all into a half gallon pitcher and enjoying it.
Strawberries are still in too of course, though we're back into the California harvest here mostly, but Mississippi blueberries are just beginning to show up now, so I've suggested those as a garnish to the peach tea. even though I didn't take the time to do it for myself. This was just one of those 'get on with it I don't feel like styling' recipes that I was lucky enough to stop long enough to even take a picture before I drank it all. Sometimes even those of us who write about food just want to eat, or in this case drink. If you're serving this to guests, for a prettier presentation, just throw a cup of either sliced strawberries, chopped peaches or fresh blueberries, or any combination of that into the pitcher. Skewer some on a cocktail pick for each glass, which is exactly what I would have done here had I not been feeling lazy. Let's just blame spring fever, shall we? Maybe next batch! Here's how to make it.

Recipe: Fresh Peach Sweet Iced Tea
- 5 individual tea bags
- 4 cups of boiling water
- 1-1/2 pounds of fresh peaches , peeled, pitted and sliced
- 1 cup (1:1) simple syrup
- 1 or 2 lemons , juiced
- 5 cups of ice cubes
- 1 cup fresh peaches , cut into bite-sized chunks, sliced strawberries or blueberries, optional
Steep tea bags in boiling water for 5 minutes set aside to chill. Meanwhile puree the peaches and push pulp through a strainer. Add the strained puree to a 1/2 gallon pitcher, stir in the simple syrup and lemon juice, top with ice and pour tea over the top stir. Cover and chill in refrigerator until needed, stirring in fruit just before serving.
Cook's Notes: I used Luzianne tea and Meyer lemons, which are sweeter. If you're using a regular lemon, you may want to add only one and taste the tea before adding a second lemon. Can substitute 3 family sized bags for the individual tea bags and granulated sugar for the simple syrup if you like. Depending on the sweetness of the peaches you're using you may want less sugar or simple syrup.

Sun Tea 101
First of all, tea leaves release their flavor into liquid. Period.
It does not matter if the water is hot, cold, or somewhere in between. When the liquid is hot, we call it steeping. If the liquid is cold, it&rsquos technically a plain old infusion. Either way, it really doesn&rsquot matter what you call it. When tea leaves get wet, flavor comes out.
The reason most people steep tea in hot water (other than just liking hot beverages) is that the tea releases its flavor faster when the water is hot. A fast release in a short amount of time usually results in an intense flavor and deep color.
That&rsquos not to say that the same thing can&rsquot happen in cool or warm water over a longer period of time.
The general idea of making sun tea is to make a large batch of iced tea for summer without having to turn on your stovetop.
How to Make Peach Iced Tea!
To start, you’ll make a peach puree using ripe peaches, a little sugar and water. Cook that until the peaches are very soft then puree into a juice.
I’ve added basil to this peach iced tea recipe because I love the savory balance of peaches and basil but I suppose that’s optional.
Stir the peach puree into the tea and basil mixture and ta-da! You’ve got homemade peach iced tea. Fill your biggest drinking glasses with lots and lots of ice, pour over and enjoy.

Peach Sweet Tea
Is it Friday yet?! Yes, I know it&rsquos only Tuesday, but Monday has already worn me out! I photographed three new recipes yesterday, including this Peach Sweet Tea. All of that cooking and photographing left my kitchen and dining room looking like a train went right through the middle of it, and it left me with flour in my hair and chocolate under my nails! But that&rsquos ok, because after it was all done, I sat down and slurped up one of these babies&hellip
Ok, so y&rsquoall wanna know how these came about? See, I was originally going to make some Plantation Iced Tea to share with y&rsquoall today. Plantation Iced Tea is a sweet, pineapple infused tea that you can order at most restaurants out here in Hawaii, and I&rsquove become a little obsessed with it lately. I went to the cabinet to pull out the pineapple juice, only to find that I was all out! As I was poking around, I spotted a can of peaches and thought to myself ooooh! Now THAT might be a good substitute!
I am actually SUPER happy that I was out of pineapple juice, because this Peach Sweet Tea is going to be my new go-to! It&rsquos so refreshing, and was an instant favorite by everyone at my house. We are big sweet tea lovers, but finding good, authentic sweet tea (made with simple syrup) anywhere outside of the southern U.S. can be a challenge! I make it at home a lot, but now I&rsquom excited about enjoying sweet tea and peaches all in one! I love anything that makes me think of home. 🙂
Alright, y&rsquoall here&rsquos the recipe so that you can enjoy it, too!
(PS: Don&rsquot worry! I&rsquoll share the Plantation Iced Tea very soon, too!)
