Ginger Peach Tea

Ginger Peach TeaFor the hot summer days I like to make a refreshing tea like this one. With fresh peaches, ginger, lemon, mint and a bit of agave for sweetness – it’s a great drink to relax outside with. It can also be dressed up with a couple shots of vodka or schnapps if you’re in the mood.

1 ounce English breakfast tea leaves, or about 7 tea bags
2 peaches, pitted and chopped
1 2″ piece of ginger, grated
1 large lemon, sliced
4 tablespoons agave
6 sprigs fresh mint
1 quart of boiling water
7-8 cups ice cubes
peachtea1Bring a quart of water to a boil and place in a heat safe pitcher. Add the lemon slices, ginger and tea and allow to steep for 8-10 minutes. In a blender mix up the peaches and agave until it’s a fine pulp. Stir the peaches and ice cubes into the pitcher, removing the tea (or tea bags). Allow the ice cubes to melt before serving, and garnish with mint. Enjoy!

    Makes me want to sit outside on our deck with a glass of this, and the sun shining in my face. πŸ™‚
