Perfect Peach Iced Tea

Second among the cool summer drinks that are a must in my fridge, ranking just below my absolute favorite, limonana, is homemade peach iced tea.

It is very easy to prepare and so much better than the bottled stuff you buy! When peaches are sweet and ripe like they are in Italy in August, peach iced tea is just the best use of the season’s gifts.

Servings 4


  • 1 lt water
  • 3 back tea bags (I like Darjeeling)
  • 8 tbsp sugar
  • 2 yellow peaches
  • 1 lemon


  • Bring the water to a rolling boil in a kettle or a saucepan.
    1 lt water
  • Drop the tea bags in and let steep for a few minutes, then add the sugar and stir well. I like my tea sweet, so the amount of sugar should be adjusted to fit your taste. Don't let the tea steep too long, otherwise you won't taste the fruit.
