With summer fast approaching, it’s time to start thinking about ways to beat the heat. Nothing is better than a delicious homemade peach sun tea. Sun tea is a classic summer drink for sipping on hot days. As the name implies, a sun tea is made from the heat of the sun. The teabags or tea leaves are typically steeped in boiling water. While the sun heats the water, the warmth of the sun also softens the teabags or leaves by releasing their flavor.
If you have been looking for tips for making peach sun tea, you are just at the right place. In this blog, we will show you how to step by step.
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients
Making peach iced tea can vary from person to person; you may add as many ingredients as you like according to your taste. But to make a perfect peach sun tea, you will need the following ingredients:
- 8 to 10 tea bags (black tea or green tea)
- 2 ripe peaches, sliced
- 1/4 cup of sugar (or sweetener of your choice)
- 1 gallon of water
Make sure to use fresh, ripe peaches for the best flavor. If you don’t have fresh peaches, you can use frozen peaches instead.
Step 2: Prepare the Tea Bags
To prepare the tea bags, you need to boil 4 cups of water in a large pot. Once the water boils, remove it from the heat and add the tea bags. Let the teabags or tea leaves steep inside for up to 5 minutes, then remove the teabags and discard them.
Step 3: Add the Peaches and Sweetener
Now you can add the sliced peaches and sugar to the pot of hot tea. Stir the mixture until all the sugar is completely dissolved in your peach sun tea.
Step 4: Let the Tea Brew in the Sun
Now let your tea brew in the sun for a perfect flavor. Pour the tea mixture into a large glass jar or pitcher with a lid. Place the jar in a sunny spot and let it sit there for about 2–3 hours, until the tea reaches your desired temperature. Your homemade peach sun tea is almost ready to be served.
Step 5: Chill and Serve
Once the tea brews to your liking, remove it from the sun and let it cool down in the fridge to chill. When the tea gets chilled, stir it gently and pour it over ice to serve. You can garnish your peach sun tea with fresh peach slices, mint leaves, or lemon if desired.
