Peach Iced Tea
- Simple Syrup:
- 1 cup organic cane sugar
- 1 cup water
- 2 ripe yellow peaches (thinly sliced, plus more for serving)
- 2-3 tbsp loose leaf black tea
- 8 cups filtered water
Bring sugar, water, and peaches to a boil in a small saucepan. Then lower heat and use a wooden spoon to stir and crush the peaches to infuse the flavour.
Once the sugar is dissolved, cover, remove from heat and let steep for 25-30 minutes.
In the meantime, brew your tea using either a large pot or a tea maker. Note: try not to let it steep longer than 4-5 minutes or it can get bitter.
Once brewed, remove tea bags or strain out loose leaf tea and transfer to a pitcher. Refrigerate to cool.
Once your simple syrup is finished, pour into a bottle or container over a fine mesh strainer to strain out peaches.
To serve, add as much of the simple syrup to the tea as you desire and stir. Serve tea over ice and fresh sliced peaches.
