Easy Homemade Peach Iced Tea Recipe

Easy Homemade Peach Iced Tea

Today, I have a favorite drink recipe to share that is perfect for those upcoming BBQs. I’ve adapted my sweet tea recipe and created an Easy Homemade Peach Iced Tea Recipe. This Peach Iced Tea is so refreshing and absolutely gorgeous, making it perfect for a party. I’m partial to serving it in a mason jar with a striped straw, but this would be beautiful served in a large glass pitcher as well.

I wanted to keep this recipe quick and easy, but still delicious. So I used peach nectar, found in the juice aisle along with fresh peaches and fresh lemon to brighten up the flavors.

  1. Melissa, I don’t know many people who could make peach tea look so outrageously delicious and refreshing! I literally want to reach through my screen and grab at that chilly glass of yummy, fruity liquid gold.

  2. Bev Melton says:

    Can’t wait to try this. Curious, why add baking soda?

  3. Melissa, This looks and sounds sooooooo delicious I am definitely going to try it! One question…what is the purpose of the baking soda? TFS!

  4. Stephanie says:

    What kind of tea do you use? Black? Orange pekoe? English Breakfast? There are so many, I’d like to get the flavor just right…

  5. Oh this look so refreshing! No powder mixes for tea here this summer! I am a new follower on Twitter and cannot wait to see what you come up with next:) Thanks for sharing- I am pinning this:)

  6. I am usually an unsweetened ice tea (it’s a New England thang) person….but this could sway me! Looks delish…pinning!!
    Stopping by from Chef In Training.

  7. Hello, when you say 10 cups of ice water, do you just mean ice or ice/water mix? Thank you.

    • Thanks for the question. Water with ice in it. I usually fill my giant measuring cup with ice, then add water to it so it measures 4 cups. I do that 2 1/2 times:0)

  8. This recipe sounds amazing but can you tell me why baking soda?

  9. I just made this, only I halved the batch. It is very good! Yes, it is smooth. I will definitely will be making this again..

  10. Cassandra Saukerson says:

    Can I make Raspberry Iced Tea with this exact Recipe?? I like both Raspberry and Peach iced teas:)

  11. I had a hard time finding in Tulsa, OK. I went to two different grocery stores. Could the Jumex Peach Nectar be used?

  12. hello, sounds lovely and will definitely try it. how long do you think it will keep in the fridge ? thank you !

  13. Melissa – I am looking for a source for those amazingly cute straws – any suggestions?

  14. hi! this sounds great. i’m just wondering, if i am planning on not serving this right away – like keeping it in my fridge instead, do i still add the ice water or will that dilute it too much? or does it need to be diluted like that? or should i just add 10 cups of water?

  15. I have been unable to find peach nectar so I bought mango nectar. I haven’t yet made it, but have to tomorrow for a party. Do you think the mango nectar along with fresh peaches will be ok?

  16. I live in the northwest and can’t always find very good peaches. What do you suggest?

  17. Jessica ovaitte says:

    If I was to use honey instead of sugar, how much would I used?

  18. Great refreshing drink I did use 3/4 cup sugar perfect

  19. I am not a sweetened tea drinker, do you think you could make it without the sugar?
