Skinny Peach Iced Tea

10-12 cups
15 min

Nothing says summer in the American South like iced tea and peaches just ripening to perfection. I love peaches grilled, packed into a cobbler, even added to some refreshing homemade iced tea! This recipe is easy to make, even if homemade tea isn't part of your normal routine. I promise, this one is worth it.


I used white peaches in this particular recipe (because that was all that was available in my area), but you are welcome to use whatever type of peach you prefer.


Pro Tip: If your tea sachéts have strings attached to them, you can wrap the strings around a wooden-handled spoon and balance the handle of the spoon over the pot to allow the tea to steep. This decreases the chances you will need to chase the sachéts around the pot when it's time to remove from the water.

Ingredients


  • 5 sachéts of black tea
  • 15 packets of Truvia or Stevia extract (approx. 2g each)
  • 1 cup peaches (peeled and diced)
  • 12 cups water

Instructions


Bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a saucepan before removing from heat and steeping the black tea sahéts in the pan for about 5 minutes.
In a separate saucepan, bring 2 cups of water to a boil, add the peach pieces and Stevia packets, stirring until the Stevia extract dissolves.
Reduce heat and allow the peach saucepan to simmer for just a few minutes.
Strain the liquid into a pitcher, add tea (AFTER allowing it to cool), and about 6 more cups of water. Add more water, if needed.
Allow to chill in the refrigerator for several hours, or serve immediately with plentiful ice.

Tips

  • White peaches offer a very delicate flavor, so a different peach variety will pack a more intense flavor.
  • Allow liquids to cool enough to stop boiling, before adding to a glass pitcher.
  • Adjust amount of sweetener used to suit your preferences.
  • Keep a few peach pieces available to use as a garnish for glasses!
