 Peach green tea – good in so many ways


My husband has been asking me to have more green tea in the house as it seems we can’t turn around without hearing more news about the benefits of green tea.  Not all green tea are created equal, according to to him, and the box Celestial Seasonings green tea I picked up simply did not pass muster.  Not one to waste perfectly good tea, I decided to make a big pitcher of iced peach green tea with the scorned tea bags. 


3 ripe peaches
4 C. plus 4 C. water
10 green tea bags
sugar or sweetener to taste

Peel and quarter the peaches, removing the pit.  Boil peaches in 4 cups of water for about 5 minutes and  remove peaches from water, reserving peach water.  Place peaches in blender and puree. 

Strain peach pulp and peach water through a fine sieve. You may have to do this a couple of times, depending on how clear you like your iced tea.   

Bring 4 cups (or more) of water to a boil in large pot.  Pour water over tea bags and let steep for about 5 minutes.  Combine strained peach water with the te, sweeten to taste and chill.  Serve with peach slices and lots of ice.  And feel your arteries open up.

(He drank the entire pitcher by himself.)
