Chef Sarah Penrod is making a refreshing tea to help you cool off as the weather gets warmer. The entire recipe makes one quart.
Georgia Strawberry Peach Tea
Beverage, Iced Tea
- 1 ½ cups water
- 1⁄2 cup strawberry jam or jelly (not preserves)
- Peach tea bags—either 1 large family tea bag (makes 1 quart) or 4 small tea bags
- 3 cups ice water
- In a small saucepan combine the 1 1⁄2 cups water, strawberry jam, and large tea bag and bring to a boil. Boil for 1 minute.
- Remove from heat and let the tea steep for 10 minutes. Remove the tea bag if you wish (peach tea is usually an herbal tea, so it is not necessary to remove from the pitcher and will continue to infuse as it sits) and pour the contents of the saucepan into a pitcher. Pour in 3 cups ice water. Fill tall glasses with additional ice and serve.
*Note: This recipe can be doubled to make 2 quarts of tea for large gatherings.
