Juicy Peach Tea Cooler
Start with Ginger Peach Black Tea. It offers bits of succulent peach and spicy ginger to create a luscious aroma and full-flavored infusion.
- 12 cups water
- ½ cup raw cane sugar or honey
- 5 ripe peaches, pits removed, peeled and chopped
- (reserve 1 peach sliced for garnish)
- 4 Tablespoons Ginger Peach Black Tea
- You’ll also need: sieve or cheesecloth, and ice
Start with heating 1 cup water in a saucepan. Add sugar to water and bring to the boil slowly, fully dissolving the sugar. Add the chopped peaches and cook until very soft. Remove from the heat, mash the peaches with a fork, and set for 1 hour to meld and cool.
Pour the syrup through a fine sieve into a bowl, mashing the fruit as you pour to release all the liquid. (This peach syrup will keep in the fridge for one week.)
Bring 10 cups water just to a boil, then remove from heat. Add 4 Tablespoons Ginger Peach Black Tea and let steep for 4 minutes, then strain tea leaves. Transfer to the fridge until chilled. Pick your favorite pitcher and pour in the peach syrup. Add the tea, with some ice. Add peach slices to serve.
Tip: This tea juice cooler is delicious topped with sparkling water.
Other Tea Juice Coolers to Try
Here are a few more teas and tisanes that are perfect for tea juice coolers.
This succulent peach tea brews up into a smooth, soothing hot tea and a crisp, summery iced tea. The flavor is reminiscent of a summer day on a Georgia peach orchard—sweet, succulent, juicy—with hints of apple and a malty, floral white tea base.
Combine with summer peaches
Delightful citrus flavors blend well with sweet hibiscus and orange peel, while rose hips add tartness. Bright, tart blood orange shines through in this invigorating blend. The aftertaste is soft, and the finish is gently satisfying.
Blend with freshly squeezed oranges
This unique combination merges tangy pomegranate and sweet melon into a surprisingly complex tea. As the tea travels down your throat it develops into a full-bodied fruity sweetness. The finish leaves you with a hint of juicy melon, roasted apricots and a whisper of smokiness.
Pair with apple juice
