I am a big fan of iced tea and a great way to change it up is to add some fresh fruit for a lovely seasonal twist.
I just got back from my Costco run and am now making some iced tea. Sometimes I make sun tea but most often I like to save time and make traditional tea so it is ready in minutes.
Today’s recipe is an easy one when you are looking for a delicious peach flavor in a cold beverage. Made in minutes wiht fresh peaches and so refreshing!
Iced tea is not only easy to make, but it is also a very inexpensive drink to make.
Ingredients For this Recipe
Tea– Many ask, how many tea bags for a gallon of sweet tea? For this recipe, we are using three family-sized tea bags. If you are using regular tea bags, you will need eight of them for a gallon.
Peaches – I used red peaches, but you can use white or a mixture of both.
Water – Tap water is boiled for this recipe so no need to use bottled water.
Sugar – This has a bit of sugar in it, but you can control the sweetness to your taste and use less sugar if you want.
Variations on this recipe.
You can sweeten the tea with a dash of honey or agave syrup if you would rather.
