      Peach Sweet Tea

      You will need:
      5 cups of water
      1 family size tea bag (or 3 regular sized tea bags, I use Lipton)
      ¾ cup sugar
      ¾ cup honey
      2 cups frozen peaches, thawed and pureed
      2 cups frozen peaches for serving (don’t thaw these!)

      Bring 4 cups of water to boil.
      Remove from heat, add the tea bag, and steep for 5 minutes.
      Pour the tea into a 2-quart pitcher then set aside
      Combine the sugar, honey, and 1 cup of water in a medium saucepan, bring the mixture to a boil, stir until the sugar dissolves.
      Add the pureed peaches and return to a low boil. Remove from the heat and leave to cool.
      Strain the mixture using a sieve. (Toss the fruit pulp or add it to smoothies for a bit of extra flavor).
      Add the strained syrup to the tea, tasting until it’s the desired sweetness.

      Use 2 cups of the syrup for a traditional Southern Sweet or just 1 cup if you’re already sweet and don’t need the sugar.

      To serve add frozen tea slices to a glass, and top off with tea. If you’d like you can use fresh peach slices and add a mint sprig for color and a burst of fresh flavor too.
