I have located this recipe on peach ice tea in the 2020 Spring/Summer edition of the Tupperware catalog. I decided to use my teapot, which has a metallic filter to make this ice tea. The portion of peach-tea mixture was more than enough to fill up my metallic tea filter, so you can actually make two portions of ice tea.¨
I could also imaging to used canned apricot instead of peach for such ice tea, or even no addition of canned fruit.
The peach flavour is not very dominated. And you can easily taste the tea in the mixture.
Peach ice tea: - 2 liter
- 3 tablespoon of black tea
- 425 g canned peach - save 2 tablespoons of the sugar syrup
- 1-1.25 l cold water (0-max 25'C)
- ice cubes - optional
- twig of green herbs such as mints or lemon balm
- Separate the canned peach fruit from the sugar syrup using a sieve. Save 2 tablespoons of the sugar syrup.
- Place the peach in a smaller mixing bowl and mash the fruit like mashed potatoes using a potato masher.
- Pour in the sugar syrup and black tea leaves, and stir.
- Fill ½ the portion into the metallic tea filter.
- Pour cold water into the tea pot. I noticed, that the draining of water filling through water into the the filter, was very bad. So therefore I filled water into the tea pot and when afterwards placed the tea filter into the tea pot.
- Place the tea pot cold in the refrigerator for 8-12 hours, so let the peach-tea mixture infuse the water.
- Remove the tea filter from the tea pot.
- Fill ice cubes and optional herbs twig into a high ball glass and fill up with the ice tea.
- Enjoy :-)
