One of my favorite iced teas is a peach tea. Its sweet and refreshing. My favorite way to prepare is to flavor a traditional orange pekoe tea with peach rather than go with a pre-flavored tea.
Here is a simple syrup recipe to flavor your ice tea:
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups water
1 can peaches, cut into smaller pieces (approximately 12 oz)
Combine all ingredients into sauce pan. Bring to boil over medium heat. Cook until sugar is dissolved. Reduce to low and simmer 10 minutes. Stir occasionally. Remove from heat. Let stand 30 minutes. Pour through a fine mesh strainer to remove fruit pieces.
I like to serve with sliced peaches for that added flavor.
This works great with several tea flavors. Raspberry and Strawberry are 2 other favorites this tastes wonderful with.
