There are many different Peach Tea Recipes out there for you to try. As long as you have gotten the base down, you can really try many variations of this lovely fruity tea!
In order to get the peach flavour into the tea, I like to use canned peaches. You have a couple of choice when using the canned variety, but it is readily available and less expensive than purchasing pure peach juice.
Look for canned peaches in a light syrup, if you use the heavy syrup variety, the tea can be overly sweet.
Ok, here is the recipe I like to use.
Peach Iced Tea Recipe
- 4 cups cold fresh water
- 4 tea bags or 4 tsp loose tea leaves
- 1 can peaches in light syrup
- 1 lemon sliced
- dash of cinnamon or cinnamon sticks – optional
Bring water to a boil in a kettle or pot, not aluminum. Steep your tea as you would normally do. You can either use just the peach syrup or for more flavour use the fruit as well. Place the peaches and syrup in a blender and puree for 1-2 minutes. Once tea is steeped, add peach puree and lemon juice. Place the peach tea in a large pitcher and chill.
When ready to serve, the pulp from the fruit will have settled to the bottom of the picture, do not re stir unless you want the fruit in the tea.
Poor over ice cubes in a tall glass and garnish with a sprinkle of cinnamon or cinnamon stick if you like. Peppermint leaves also make a nice garnish!
To serve hot, just reheat the tea without boiling, and serve immediately.
A very nice, refreshing tea, whether you drink it hot or cold.
Note: Typically you would use black tea for this drink, but you could just as easily make Green Tea Peach Tea or White Tea Peach Tea, or any other type simply by changing the type of tea used.
