  • 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 rooibos tea bags
  • Fresh mint, lemon slices, and peach slices for serving


Make the peach syrup:

  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.

  4. Add in the lemon juice and set aside.

Make the iced tea lemonade:

  1. 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.

  2. Combine the peach-lemon mixture with the tea, cover, and transfer to the fridge to chill for at least 1 hour.

  3. 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.
