Equipment

Ingredients

  • 2 green tea bags
  • 1 litre cold water
  • 2 very ripe peaches peeled and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon agave nectar

Instructions

  • In a sealable jar, combine the tea bags and water. Close the lid of the jar and set in the fridge to brew overnight.
  • The next day, remove the tea bags from the iced green tea. Pour the iced green tea into an upright blender. Add the chopped peaches, lemon juice, and agave nectar. Blend this mixture on high until peaches are liquified, about 45 seconds.
  • Set a fine mesh strainer over a wide mouth pitcher or bowl. Pour half of the iced peach green tea through the strainer. Using a spoon, scrape any pulp away to keep the tea flowing through the strainer. Once done, repeat with the remaining half of the iced peach green tea.
  • Serve the iced peach green tea over lots of ice with an extra squeeze of lemon if you like. This tea keeps in a sealed jar in the fridge for up to 3 days. Shake before serving.

Notes

  • The tea will get super frothy after you blend it with the peaches, but don’t panic. I just skim off a bit of the top layer of foam and let the rest settle after straining.
  • I’ve used plain green tea and a few flavoured green teas as well (mint, a tropical mix one) in this and all were great.
  • I brew my green tea overnight to tame the bitterness and to keep the tea as clear as possible.
