Ingredients

  • 3 ripe peaches, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 7 and 1/2 cups water, divided
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons loose leaf tea or 2 tea bags (black or green tea)

Instructions

Once brewed, strain out the tea leaves or remove the tea bags and transfer to the pitcher. Stir to combine and refrigerate until cool.
