Peachy Iced Tea

Peachy Iced Tea

Balancing the tannins in strong brewed tea with pieces of fresh summer fruit and sweet fruit nectar creates an exceptionally refreshing beverage. Tote it in a Thermos or ice-filled, tightly capped plastic pitcher to your picnic spot. For a variation, substitute blackberry juice, blueberry juice or bilberry nectar for peach nectar, and try blackberries for peaches.
