Peach Iced Tea

Summer offers fun in the sun and nothing goes better with outdoor fun than iced tea. Fruit teas add a refreshing twist to this Southern staple.  Here is a super simple peach iced tea!  Just 4 simple, real ingredients.  And of course it’s sweet, this is the South honey!  Am I concerned about the health effects of sugar?  Well, I will say that I am far more concerned about the health effects of the chemicals in artificial sweetener.  All things in moderation.  You can sweeten it with honey as well.

INGREDIENTS:
2 sliced peaches
3 family sized Luzianne (Lipton) tea bags
1 cup of sugar
8 cups of water

DIRECTIONS:
Add the sliced peaches, sugar and 1 cup of water to a sauce pan over medium heat and bring to a boil.

Reduce to medium and stir to dissolve sugar.

Once sugar is dissolved, turn off heat and let sit for 30 minutes.

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil and steep tea bags for 10 minutes.

Add steeped tea and remaining 5 cups of water to tea pitcher.  Pour peaches through a strainer and stir to incorporate into tea.

Add ice to chill and serve!
