I'm Making This Peach Ice Tea For Every Summer Gathering.

Peachy and refreshing, this peach ice tea is so simple to make it's a great way to amplify the taste of traditional ice tea. With peaches in season, I couldn't resist whipping up a pitcher. We love ice tea in this family, but I do appreciate this home-made version so we can control the sugar. It truly tastes so much better when you make your own brew.

Here's how we do it.


Peaches (fresh and frozen)



Black tea bags

Mint for garnish

There are two steps to making this. First, make your simple syrup.

Peach Simple Syrup:

2 peaches, cut up in small slices

1/2 - 1 cup of sugar

1 cup of water

  1. In a small saucepan, bring sugar, water and peaches to a boil.

  2. Stir to dissolve sugar.

  3. Remove from heat and mash peaches with the back of a spoon to muddle.

  4. Cover and let sit for about 20 minutes. When done, strain through a mesh to remove peach parts.

  5. Let cool.

The Tea

4-5 large size tea bags (we like English Breakfast, but use your favorite tea of choice)

Fresh mint

Peaches and Lemons

  1. Boil a kettle or pot of water and add your tea bags. Let them steep to desired taste (the longer the steep the stronger the tea).

  2. Let cool.

  3. Fill a glass pitcher full of ice and add in your fresh mint, peaches (frozen peaches work well here) and lemons.

  4. Add in your tea (make sure it is cooled off) and fill your pitcher.

  5. Incorporate your simple syrup and stir it in to desired sweetness.

  6. Garnish your pitcher with leftover mint.

Serve for that garden party, or a refreshing summer sipper around the pool or lakeside.
