Peach Jasmine Ice Tea

Today was hot...sweltering hot! And what better way to cool off than with a nice iced tea. This past week my brother and I went peach picking, we came home with 11 lbs of peaches! Plenty of peaches for a variety of things from peach muffins to peach iced tea.

Despite today's heat, Kishore and I spent the better part of the day in our backyard. And after working tending our garden in the oppressive heat, it was time for us to take a break and rehydrate. So inside I went, to quickly whip up some nice, cool, refreshing, much needed iced tea.

This simple fruity ice tea is perfectly cool for hot summer afternoons. Light, refreshing floral jasmine melding with sun-kissed sweet, freshly picked peaches. 

Here is the recipe for Peach Jasmine Ice Tea:
Makes 4 servings


3 Large Ripe Peaches
1 TBLSP Jasmine Tea (Dragon Pearl)*
1 TBLSP Honey
3 cups of water

* Green Tea goes well too!


1. Heat the water to just before boil then allow to cool slightly.
2. Pour 3 cups warm water over the Jasmine Pearls, add the honey, and allow to seep for 3-5minutes.

3. Peel the peaches and puree in a blender or food processor.

4. Add the cooled tea, peach puree, and ice to mix in a blender or food processor.

Serve with Ice cubes, and garnish with a Peach slice.
