Little confession: I used to be obsessed with ice tea, unfortunately not with the good homemade kind but the sugary industrial ones. Luckily I managed to rid of that habit. This summer however, I developed the good kind of ice tea obsession. I started making my own ice tea almost every day, I did super fancy ones with rose tea or even mate brew. But my favorite still remains a good old peach ice tea. This one has some added deliciousness from pomegranate seeds and mint. The best part about it though, is how easy it is to make!
Peach and Pomegranate Ice Tea
To make 1l of ice tea:
- 1 l of chilled white tea
- 2 fresh peaches
- 1/4 cup of sugar
- 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds
- 3 stalks of fresh mint
- Cut the peaches into little cubes and place into a sauce pan with the sugar. Simmer on medium heat while occasionally stirring until the peaches have almost dissolved.
- Then run the peaches through a sieve leaving behind a thick sirup. Stir the sirup into the white tea.
- Add the pomegranate seeds and the mint to the teat as well and let everything soak for about 1 hour.
- Serve on ice.
