Raspberry Peach Iced Tea



This month the Groovy Gourmets, decided to prepare a drink from Foodgawker, which is dairy free.  With the kind of weather here, I would have really liked to have something hot but then on one sunny day, I prepared this delicious fruit flavoured Iced Tea.



I guess there are no strict rules to prepare this iced tea. You could flavour it with a any fruit of your choice like strawberries, oranges, or even just lemon. I am sure it would be a welcome change from the regular drinks.



What you'll need
  1. Tea Bags – 3 (I used Lipton Black Tea)
  2. Fresh Raspberries – 1 cup
  3. Peaches – 2
  4. Sugar or Honey as per taste
  5. Mint leaves for garnish

Method
  1. Bring 3 cups water to boil. Place the tea bags in it and let it steep for full 5 minutes.
  2. Discard the tea bags and let it cool.
  3. Peel the peaches and chop into small pieces.
  4. Blend the peaches and raspberries until smooth.
  5. Strain through a fine sieve.
  6. In a large vessel, whisk together raspberry peach mixture, brewed tea and sugar/honey.
  7. Refrigerate until chilled.
  8. Serve over ice, with more raspberries, peach slices and mint leaves.
