This totally refreshing Peach Iced Tea is full of fresh peach flavors. You can make this delish tea with just four simple ingredients. Warmer weather is arriving and iced tea is a wonderful spring and summer drink. Fresh brewed tea with added flavors from a simple syrup always makes for a great drink to serve up when the sun is shining.
Peach Iced Tea
I usually serve traditional unsweetened iced tea or our Copycat Starbucks Passion Tea Lemonade when we have our family grill-outs. This year, I was looking to make some flavored syrups to serve along side of our iced tea. Since I had peaches on hand, peach simple syrup was the first I made.
Simple syrups are so incredibly easy to make. In just a few minutes time, you can whip up just about any flavor. Grab just about any fruit that you have and make yourself a simple syrup that can be a perfect addition to your iced tea this summer. Peaches work perfect and make a iced tea very similar to Sonic Drive-In.
In order to make Peach Iced Tea, you will just need four ingredients. Fresh peaches, black tea bags, sugar and water. I used a total of 3 peaches. I used a few slices to toss in with our ice.
1 cup Sugar
1 cup Water
2-3 sliced fresh Peaches
3 Tea Bags
6 cups Water
Bring syrup ingredients to boil. Then reduce heat to medium.
Crush peach slices as you stir to dissolve sugar.
Turn off heat cover and let sit for 30 minutes.
Boil water and brew tea letting steep 5 minutes.
Remove tea bags and refrigerate.
Strain syrup through a fine strainer to remove fruit pieces.
Add syrup to tea and serve over ice.
