Bonus Recipe: Peach Sweet Tea + Summer Tips

I like to use a tall, pretty glass pitcher my dear friends found at a yard sale. They thought of our family when they saw the letter “J” (for Johnson, of course) etched into the glass pitcher. It always brings a smile to my face! – Elise Johnson

about 6 cups water
3 peach tea bags
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 cup water

Fill your tea kettle or saucepan with water. Bring to a boil. Turn off heat and place the tea bags in to steep for one hour or more.

While the tea is steeping, make simple syrup by bringing granulated sugar and one cup of water to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until sugar has completely dissolved and reduced by half. Please note: Be careful to not walk away because this happens rather quickly!

Remove the peach tea bags and pour tea into the pitcher of your choice.

Add simple syrup (wasn’t that easy?) to tea and refrigerate until nice and cold. Enjoy big sips!

Summer tip
: Make a little extra tea to freeze in ice cube trays. Place one piece of mint in each cube, fill with tea and freeze. As the frozen tea cubes melt they will add flavor to your tea, instead of diluting it like ice cubes do.
