  1. Peach tea looks wonderful. I'd love the recipe!

  2. No probs! I used white tea.

    Peach Tea Recipe

    6 large sweet peaches
    4 cups water
    1 cup sugar
    4 cups tea

    1. Place washed and sliced peaches (skins left on) in a saucepan with four cups of water and 1 cup of sugar. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring. Reduce heat to simmer and cook for one hour.
    2. Turn off heat and allow fruit mixture to set for at least one hour or longer.
    3. Set a sieve over a collecting container, place a thin tea towel or cheese cloth over the sieve. (Sometimes in a pinch a coffee filter will work.) Pour the cooled fruit mixture through the cloth and sieve. This should yield around 4 cups of syrup depending upon the cook down and peaches.
    4. To make the tea place a quart of brewed tea in a pitcher and stir in 1 1/2 cups of the 'cold' syrup.
    5. This will not be a very sweet tea, if you want it sweeter add a 1/2 a cup of sugar at a time.
