Peach Iced Green Tea Recipe

Peach Iced Green Tea Recipe:

A refreshing summer drink that’s rich in antioxidants, peach iced green tea.

The quest for refreshing summer drink continues and every day all I want is a delicious liquid rolling down my tongue, slipping through my lungs and landing into a cool swirl inside my stomach. ‘Keep hydrated’ is what keeps spinning in my head and I take a load of water and fresh juices throughout the day but then the palate too needs to treated to its favourite Cooler or Mocktail once in a while, don’t you agree. High on my list of non alcohol beverages is an iced tea tumbler, that’s not just because I am an undisputed tea lover but also because they are really refreshing.

It was when I opened my fridge to fetch lemons for a regular lemon iced green tea that these good ripe peaches that I had picked at the grocers yesterday caught my attention. And you guessed it right; my recipe was immediately altered to a peach iced green tea instead making it a healthy high antioxidant full drink.

Dos and Don’ts:

  • Just adjust sugar and tea quantity to your taste. I like the taste of tea to be medium strong, you may cut down the quantity by a tea bag or make it ½ a spoon if you like it really mild.
