The BEST Peach Iced Tea Recipe


– 2 1/2 c. water – 4-6 black tea bags (regular or decaf) – 1 large, ripe fresh peach – 2 tsp. fresh ginger root – 1 Tbsp. sugar or sweetener – Water – Ice – Mint leaves for garnish (optional)

INGREDIENTS needed to make Peach Iced Tea

Slice the Peach

Wash and slice the peach. Add the peach slices to a small bowl along with the ginger zest, and sugar. Stir to fully coat the peaches with the sugar and zest.

Peach Options

Don't have fresh peaches available? You can also use frozen peach slices.

Steep Tea

In a small saucepan, add the 2 1/2 c. water and bring to a boil. Remove from heat. Add the tea bags, cover the saucepan, and let the tea steep.

Let tea cool to room temp

Let the tea come to room temperature. Remove the tea bags (don't squeeze the tea bags. This will release the tannin and make your tea bitter.)

Pour concentrate over peaches & ice

Pour the tea concentrate over the ice and peaches and fill the pitcher with water. Chill at least 1 hour before serving.
