Just here to tell you this peach green tea is so easy to make at home, and so refreshing! Although I have lived in the South for over 20 years, I still drink my tea un-sweetened. So, this recipe does not have any processed sugars or sweeteners. However, if you want your tea sweet, just add the amount of sugar when you steep the tea. A true Southerner only drinks sweet tea that has had the sugar added at the start of the process!
Seriously, though, Pearson Peaches are just so sweet, that you will NOT even NEED sugar! To get the FULL Starbucks experience, you are gonna want to add some tea and ice to a cocktail shaker, and give it a good shake!
What we love about Pearson Farm peaches is that they are delivered to our doorstep!

What you will need for this Peach Green Tea:
- Glass pitcher
- Green Tea Bags
- 4 cups warm water
- 4 green tea bags
- 1 fresh peach, pit removed, sliced
- Sprig of mint, lemon balm, or basil (optional)
Pour warm water into a clear glass container. Add green tea bags and fresh peach slices. Note, if you want sweet tea, add a few tablespoons of sugar at this point. Cover.
Place in a sunny spot outside for at least 4 hours. The longer it steeps, the stronger the tea will get.
Remove tea bags, and strain tea through a strainer, removing the peaches. Strain one more time. Pour into a pitcher.
At this point, you can keep in the refrigerator, or serve over ice. To get the full Starbucks experience, add a cup of ice to a cocktail shaker, and add tea, and shake. Garnish with mint, lemon balm or basil. Enjoy!
Peach green tea will stay fresh for 3-4 days in the fridge.
