Peach Tea Lemonade

Summer is flying right by! I was excited to snag a 25 pound box of peaches from the Georgia Peach Truck last week; it gave me the perfect excuse to spend the weekend baking up a storm to work my way through the box. I can get a little antsy in the summer because it looks gorgeous outside but it’s actually 95 degrees, insanely humid, and buggy as all get out. So, instead, I try to channel that antsy energy into the kitchen and get creative with all the produce popping up.

The first recipe I developed with my peaches was this Peach Tea Lemonade! This Peach Tea Lemonade is so refreshing – a touch sweet, herbal, and flavorful!

For the tea, I used roobis tea because I love the way it blends with lemon. If you aren’t a roobis fan, you could also use chamomile or black tea depending on what you have on hand. Also, traditional simple syrup usually has a 1:1 ratio of water and sugar. However, since the peaches are already sweet and I don’t like my drinks too sweet, I cut down on the sugar for the syrup. Feel free to add more sugar at the end when you are ready to serve if you think it needs a little more for your liking.

Start by making a simple syrup and then mixing the lemon juice straight into it. From there, brew the tea and let it cool while the simple syrup cools. Once at room temperature, we combine the two and let chill in the fridge until ready to serve. Easy! Serve it with additional slices of lemon, peaches, or mint for an extra pop of color!

Ingredients
  • 3 peaches pitted and cut into 1 inch pieces
  • 6 cups water divided
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (from about 6 lemons)
  • 4 roobis tea bags
  • Fresh mint, lemon slices, and peach slices for serving
Instructions
  1. Place peach pieces, 2 cups water, and granulated sugar in a medium saucepan and bring to a simmer. Cover and let simmer for 15 minutes or until the peaches has become very soft.

  2. Use the back of a fork or spoon to break up and smash the pieces of peaches to release some of their juices. Continue to simmer for an additional 10 minutes.

  3. Remove from heat and let cool for 10 minutes. Add in the lemon juice and set aside.

  4. While the peach syrup is simmering, bring 4 cups of water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Remove from heat, add tea bags, cover, and let steep for as long as the package directions suggest.

  5. Combine the peach-lemon mixture with the tea, cover, and transfer to the fridge to chill for at least an hour.

  6. When ready to serve, taste and add more water if you’d like it more diluted. Transfer to serving glasses, top with ice, and garnish with mint, lemon, and peach slices.
