Iced tea season is back, so I thought I would share this recipe for sparkling iced tea, packed with fresh peach and raspberries, and perfect for a hot summer day.
Try to make the tea base a day in advance, and chill it overnight in the fridge. This allows the flavors to mingle and get to know each other, resulting in a somewhat smoother taste. If you’re in a hurry, though, you can just make a strong pot of tea and chill it quickly with ice cubes. Just remember that the ice will water the tea down a bit, so the tea flavor might not be as strong.
The iced tea looks its very best, when served up in a big mason jar, but a glass pitcher works just as well. You can use any kind of tea as a base. Black, green, white – it’s all good, but if you’re after a truly peachy and delicious flavor, try the Delta Peach Yaupon Holly Tea from Yazoo Yaupon.
