What’s better than souther sweet tea? Southern Peach Iced Tea! We absolutely love sweet peach iced tea in our home, and of course we prefer the homemade stuff over the powdered, and canned iced teas. Our southern iced tea is made with real peaches, black tea, water, and sugar. It’s the real deal, and everyone that we serve it to loves it.
This southern peach iced tea recipe is made with frozen peaches. Why? Because they are less expensive, and they’re also easy to find. However, if you’d like to use fresh peaches for your southern peach iced tea, you can certainly do so.
This peach ice tea is made with 4 family sized black tea bags. If you find that the iced tea is a tad bit too strong for you, you can add more water.
