RECIPE: Homemade Peach Iced Tea

  Last night we dined out, and were seated next to a table of four who were ordering up a storm of house-made peach iced tea. Their iced tea bill alone probably equaled the cost of our dinner.

So in acknowledgement of National Iced Tea Month and saving money by making it yourself, here’s a recipe courtesy The Republic Of Tea.

The recipe uses low-glycemic agave nectar, but you can substitute sugar or other sweetener—or skip the sweetener entirely.

As you can see from the photo, this recipe does not make crystal-clear iced tea. Instead, blending in the peaches delivers more peach flavor and a juice-like opacity. Instructions for a conventional, clear peach iced tea are included below.

 
PEACH ICED TEA RECIPE

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water
  • 5 tea bags of your unflavored tea (black, green, herbal, white)
  • 2 ripe peaches, pits removed (frozen peaches may be substituted) —or— 1 peach and a mango, skin and pit removed
  • 2 tablespoons agave nectar
  • 1 cup ice
  • Optional garnish: skewer of diced fresh peaches
  •  
    Preparation

    1. BOIL water and pour over tea bags in a heat-resistant pitcher. Infuse for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags and place pitcher in refrigerator to chill.

    2. COMBINE chilled tea, fruit, agave nectar and ice in a blender. Blend and serve with optional peach garnish. Makes three eight-ounce glasses.

    VARIATIONS

    Ginger-Peach Iced Tea: For a sizzle of ginger, add 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger to the blender, or infuse a few slices of fresh ginger with the tea bags.

    For Clear Iced Tea: Dice the fruit and infuse with tea bags in the boiled water. Do not blend. Serve over ice.
    PEACH ICED TEA BAGS & MIXES

    You can brew peach iced tea from pre-flavored tea bags and mixes. But as you can see from this review, you might not get the natural peach flavor you expect.
