Make A Delicious Mint Peach Iced Black Tea
Beverages / Tea
Delicious year round, but especially during the summer – mint peach iced black teas combine the sweet and refreshing flavors of peach and mint with the bold, smooth undertones of black tea.
For this recipe, I recommend the use of a french press. This will make working with both the loose tea and mint leaves easier.
3-4 Ripe Peaches – dice into 1/2 inch pieces
Small bunch of mint leaves
Begin by bringing 16 ounces of water to a near boil. While you wait, feel free to set aside a couple mint leaves for decoration, while adding the rest of the mint leaves to your french press.
Pour your black tea into your french press. Once the water is at a near boil, slowly add your water into your french press.
Steep the tea and mint for 3 minutes. This will give the tea a lighter flavor which works well with peaches.
While you steep, add peaches and ice into two 8oz cups.
After 3 minutes, slowly push the plunger of the french press down. Pour in black tea while allowing more room for additional ice as desired.
Top with mint leaves and enjoy!
