Perfect Peach Iced tea

Although I wouldn’t say I liked peaches as a kid, I love them now. It only took one peach milkshake to change my mind. Ice cream is a powerful force in my life.

Origins of Peach Tea

In the Southern US, sweetened iced tea is a popular beverage. The oldest recipe written is, believed to date back to an 1879 cookbook. Peaches are not a traditional addition to iced Tea, but are common in the southern states. Georgia is a good example.

We’ve taken inspiration from the peach teas we’ve had in restaurants to create our version.

This peach iced Tea is absolutely perfect. This Tea is better than Sonic’s. I don’t want to admit that I drink it. Since the secret is out, I love Sonic’s unsweetened peach iced tea, and I was delighted to create something similar at home using ingredients I trusted that were much fresher.

The peach syrup is the most gorgeous pink color. It tastes like liquid peach candy. You’re mistaken if you say you don’t like it.

After you’ve made your simple syrup, it’s time to brew your favorite black Tea. Bagged Tea works just as well. We prefer loose-leaf Tea, but you can use it too. Peach is the main flavor, but quality tea doesn’t hurt.

  • Cane sugar organic 1 cup
  • One cup of water
  • Two ripe Peaches (thinly cut // plus extra for serving)


  • Tea bags or loose-leaf black tea (depending on how strong it is): 2-3 Tbsp
  • 8 cups of filtered water


  • Bring peaches, sugar, and water to a boil together in a small pan. Reduce heat, and then use a wooden teaspoon to crush and stir the peaches. This will infuse them with flavor.
  • Once the sugar has dissolved, remove it from heat, cover it, and steep it for between 25 and 30 minutes.
  • Use a large pot or a teamaker to brew Tea. I use the loose-leaf tea steeper by IngenuiTEA. NOTE: If you want it stronger or weaker, use more Tea. Do not let it steep for longer than 4 minutes.
  • After brewing, remove the tea bags or strain loose-leaf tea into a pitcher. To cool, refrigerate.
  • Pour the syrup into a container or bottle and strain through a fine-mesh strainer. The peaches can be saved for later use. For example, you could sprinkle them over ice cream or oats.
  • Pour serving; either add the syrup to your Tea in the amount you desire or pour the entire syrup into the Tea and stir. I prefer to keep it separate. Serve the Tea with ice cubes and fresh peaches. The recipe, as written originally, yields approximately ten servings.
