Recipe: Sparkling iced tea with peach and raspberries

Recipe: Sparkling iced tea with peach and raspberries

This iced tea is great on a hot summer day, and the sparkling water makes it even more refreshing. It has lots of fresh fruit and berries, so you might want to serve it with a long-handled iced tea spoon. You can make the tea base the day before and let it chill overnight in the fridge, but if you want your iced tea, right here, right now, you can make a strong pot of tea, and use ice cubes to chill the tea quickly. Just be aware that the ice cubes will dilute the tea, so the flavor will be slightly less intense.

The iced tea looks amazing served in a big jam canning jar or mason jar, but you can also serve it in a glass pitcher. 

You can use any kind of black tea, green tea or white tea as a base, but my favorite tea for this recipe is the Delta Peach Yaupon Holly Tea.

Ingredients

  • 34 oz 34 chilled tea

  • 1-2 tablespoons 1-2 honey or sugar (optional)

  • 6-8 6-8 raspberries

  • 1 1 peach

Directions

  • Brew a pot (34 oz) of your favorite tea. Let the tea steep until it is a strong as possible, but without getting bitter. Usually, that would be 10 minutes for black tea and 30 minutes for Yaupon Holly tea.
  • Add honey or sugar (Optional). Make the tea a little sweeter than you normally would, as it will be diluted by the ice cubes and the sparkling water. Stir until the honey or sugar is completely dissolved.
  • Let the tea chill in the fridge overnight, or chill with ice cubes.
  • Cut 3/4 of the peach into small pieces. Cut 1/4 of the peach into paper-thin slices for decoration.
  • Chop the raspberries coarsely.
  • Stick the paper-thin slices to the inside of the jar.
  • Fill 1/3 of the jar with ice cubes.
  • Add the peach and the raspberries.
  • Fill half of the rest of the jar with tea.
  • Top up with sparkling water.
