Peach Iced Tea Recipe

Peaches are a summertime favorite in my family. We're from Georgia, where the warm months bring peach cobbler, peach pie, and peach iced tea!

This peach iced tea recipe makes a flavored tea that is better and so much cheaper than the store-bought stuff. Iced tea with a touch of peach makes an enticing beverage, for summer or any time of the year.

Peach Iced Tea
This tea is just peachy!

My recipe uses peach nectar from the grocery store. I think you could make a good peach tea by juicing fresh peaches (basically making your own peach nectar), but that's a lot of work! Because the nectar is already sweet, I did not add very much extra sugar. If you like your tea sweeter, you can add an additional 1/4 cup of sugar while the tea is still hot or add simple syrup at the end.

Peach Iced Tea Ingredients

Look for peach nectar in the juice aisle of your grocery store. Nectar is just peach puree from concentrate mixed with water and sugar. Unfortunately many of the nectars contain high fructose corn syrup. I found a peach juice that contains no HFCS and it can be used just as easily in this recipe.

Peach Iced Tea Recipe

Makes a half gallon of iced tea (8 cups).

What You'll Need:

  • 6 1/2 cups water
  • 6 black tea bags
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups peach nectar (or one can)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 peaches


  1. Boil 4 cups of water in a saucepan.

  2. Remove from heat. Place tea bags in the water and let steep for 10 minutes.

  3. Remove tea bags. Add sugar and stir to dissolve.

  4. After allowing the tea to cool a little longer, pour tea into a pitcher and add 2 1/2 cups of cold water.

  5. Stir in peach nectar and lemon juice. Chill in the refrigerator.

  6. Just before serving, slice fresh peaches and add them to the pitcher or to each glass. Serve over ice.


Stir the tea every time you take it out of the fridge to serve. The puree from the nectar tends to settle toward the bottom.

If you leave out the sugar and add splenda to taste, it tastes like Crystal Light peach tea in my opinion!

Mix It Up!

If you like this recipe with peach nectar, try making other fruity teas by following the same recipe but adding mango, pineapple, or apricot nectar.
