Peach Iced Tea

Peach Iced Tea

Ingredients

  • Simple Syrup:
  • 1 cup organic cane sugar
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 rip yellow peaches, thinly sliced (plus more for serving)
  • Tea:
  • 2-3 tablespoons loose leaf black tea
  • 8 cups filtered water

Method

Step 1

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.

Step 2

Once the sugar is dissolved, cover, remove from heat and let steep for 25-30 minutes.

Step 3

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.

Step 4

Once brewed, remove tea bags or strain out loose leaf tea and transfer to a pitcher. Refrigerate to cool.

Step 5

Once your simple syrup is finished, pour into a bottle or container over a fine mesh strainer to strain out peaches.

Step 6

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.
