Making this unsweetened raspberry peach iced tea couldn’t be easier. This is a great drink recipe to make on those hot summer days too!
I grew up in the Midwest where iced tea is THE staple drink, but I never really cared for it growing up. I always found the taste to be a little bitter. However, when my mom would make Sun Tea full of lemons, or raspberries, and sometimes if we were lucky, peaches, then I would definitely enjoy a few glasses.
When my husband and I moved to Tennessee after college, I gave sweet tea a go and was hooked from the first sip. Where we lived, the tea wasn’t sweet enough if you couldn’t chew it! I continued to enjoy sweet tea up until we moved back to the Midwest a few years ago.
When we started eating low carb and cut out extra sugar, I knew I had to get myself to like unsweetened tea again. Iced tea is easy to make, and the tea bags really cost next to nothing! It couldn’t be a cheaper drink to make.
Ive been making this Raspberry Peach Iced Tea recipe for awhile now, and decided I should share it with you. The only sweetness comes from the fruit, however you can easily add some sweetener if desired. I’ve included the instruction below and in the recipe card. I hope you enjoy!
How to Make Raspberry Peach Iced Tea
First you’ll want to make the raspberry peach syrup that you’ll be adding to the iced tea. Don’t let the syrup part scare you! Making it is very simple!
The first step is to add the sliced peaches and raspberries to a blender. Pour in a cup of water and pulse until smooth! If desired, you can add 1-2 tbsp of honey, agave syrup or other sugar-free syrup to sweeten, but it’s not necessary.
Once finished, pour the mixture through a fine-mesh strainer, into a glass pitcher. This step is crucial to getting out any seeds or chunks from the syrup.
Next, brew your tea! I prefer to use Lipton brand family size tea bags because I like the taste. However, you can use your favorite tea brand here. Simply boil 4 cups of water, and then steep 2 family sized bags according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Squeeze and remove the tea bags.
Add 3-4 cups of ice to the glass pitcher with the raspberry peach syrup in it. Pour the tea into the glass pitcher and stir! Enjoy served over ice.
