Peaches have to be one of my favorite summer fruits. They are always so sweet, and juicy, with a nice bright red and orange color. And they smell wonderful. Fresh and frozen peaches are one of my favorite fruits to bake with and I have a couple of peach recipes that you might like - my famous Peach Cobbler and Peach Crisp.
This Lipton peach sweet tea is made by first making a peach syrup using fresh peaches, then blending the peaches and adding it to freshly brewed Lipton black tea. The sweetness of the peach syrup is the perfect complement to the slight bitterness of the black tea. It is a light and refreshing summer drink that everyone will love! Especially if you are a fan of peaches!
