Black Peach Iced Tea

How to Make a Black Peach Iced Tea

This week’s Try It Tea is a Black Iced tea with peaches! There are so many different teas you can try with this recipe, although I have found that non-scented or non-flavored black teas work best.

Ingredients & Tools

You will need:

A pitcher, sauce pan, and a strainer


  • Non-flavored/Scented Black Tea ie. English breakfast, Assam ( 3 tea bags or loose leaf for 2 cups of water)
  • 2 cups of water
  • 4 cups of ice
  • Sliced Peaches (Optional)

Peach Syrup

  • 2 cups of water
  • 2 tablespoons of white sugar
  • 1.5 cups peaches diced (fresh) or  2- 2.5 cups frozen


For Tea:

    1. Heat water to desired temperature and steep the tea for desired amount of time. (Follow specified directions for your tea) This can be done with a tea pot, kettle or on the stove.
    2. Set aside to cool once tea has been steeped and removed.

For Peach Syrup:

  1. To make the peach syrup, combine water and peaches in the blender.
  2. After it has been blended, add it and the sugar to a saucer pan.
  3. Bring the peaches to a boil and then low heat to simmer for another 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the syrup from heat and let cool.
  5. Strain the peaches from the Syrup.


  1. Once both the tea and syrup have cooled, combine and add ice and peach slices (if preferred)

Suggestions & Best Practices

  • If you are looking to have less caffeine steep your tea, discard that liquid and then steep it again. Tea will have significantly less caffeine in the second steep.
  • OR use Rooibos Tea for non-caffeinated drink (please note that rooibos does not have as strong of flavors and will need more tea or less peach syrup).
  • If using frozen peaches, use them in place of  some of the ice to help flavor the drink and keep it cold (Please note: it will not last as long in the fridge if you do that).
  • Also, I noticed with using the frozen peaches, you needed more to have enough peach flavor compared to the fresh peaches.
  • If you have left over peach syrup freeze it in the ice tray for peach flavored ice.
