To make the simple syrup, combine the peaches, water, and sugar in a small pot and bring to a simmer, let simmer for 10 minutes then remove from heat and allow to cool completely before using, about 30 minutes
1 cup frozen peaches, ½ cup water, ½ cup granulated sugar
Strain the syrup through a fine mesh sieve before using to separate the fruit out. Discard the fruit, reserve for the final tea when serving, or serve it over ice cream.
While the syrup cools, add 2 cups of water to a teapot or pot and bring to a boil. Add the tea bags and let steep for 5 minutes.
4 cups water, 4 black tea bags
Remove the tea bags and add the 2 remaining cups of water to a pitcher with the tea.
Stir in baking soda, lemon juice, and peach syrup. Add sliced lemons and peaches to the pitcher if desired and chill for 1 hour before serving.
1 teaspoon baking soda, 1 lemon, ½ cup Peach Simple Syrup
