  • 2 liters boiling water (about 8 cups)
  • 3 or 4 black tea bags
  • 2/3 cup water
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 3 ripe peaches cut into slices


For the tea:

  • To a large heat-safe pitcher, add the black tea bags and the boiling water. Let the tea steep for 10 minutes or so, then remove the tea bags and let the tea cool.
  • Slice two of the peaches and add them to the warm tea. Let them sit in the tea as it cools.

For the simple syrup:

  • While the tea cools, add the water and sugar to a small pot over high heat on the stove.
  • Let the water and sugar heat up until the sugar completely dissolves in the water. Stir once or twice, if necessary.
  • Remove the water and sugar mixture from the heat and set it aside to cool.
  • While the syrup is hot, add one of the peaches, sliced, and let the syrup absorb the flavour of the peach as it cools.
  • After the tea has cooled and the syrup has also cooled (this will take about one hour), remove the peach slices from the syrup and discard them.
  • Pour the syrup into the tea and stir well to combine.
  • Pour the sweetened tea over ice and serve.



This Peach Tea can be made one to two days ahead of time. Simply prepare the tea mixture and the syrup as directed, mix the syrup into the tea and refrigerate in an airtight container or pitcher for 1-2 days ahead of serving.
