Ingredients

  • 4 large peaches divided
  • 4 family size tea bags (Or 6 cup size tea bags)
  • 4 cups water plus additional cold water to fill pitcher
  • ½ cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup granulated sugar

Instructions

  • Halve 2 peaches and remove the pit. Cut into ½ inch slices. Place in a single layer on a parchment lined baking sheet. Freeze for 4 hours until solid or overnight.
  • On the stove top, bring 4 cups of water to a rolling boil. Remove from the heat and add 4 family-size tea bags. Cover and steep for 5-7 minutes. Remove the tea bags adding 1 cup of granulated sugar. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Peel and pit the remaining 2 peaches. Cut into cubes. Place into a stand blender with ½ cup fresh lemon juice.
  • Puree the peaches until smooth then push through a fine mesh sieve to remove the pulp. Mix with the tea. Pour into a 2.5 quart pitcher adding enough cold water to fill ¾ from the top. Stir until fully combined. Chill well.
  • To serve, add frozen peach slices to the pitcher and glasses in place of ice cubes. Garnish with fresh mint, if desired.
  • Store chilled. It's best used within 48 hours of making.
