Peach Green Tea

Peach Green Tea by EclecticRecipes.com #recipe

Yesterday I was setting up to photograph this incredible iced peach tea. I had everything set up, and my new heavy Canon 5d attached to my heavy duty tripod. Suddenly I guess the weight of the camera was too much and the whole thing tumbled over right on my big toe. Fortunately the camera and tripod are okay, my toe broke their fall. Unfortunately, my toe is not okay. This was the same big toe that I had lost my toenail on when we were learning how to ski this past January (I actually lost them on both feet). Within a matter of minutes my toenail was black again.

As of yesterday my toenail was almost grown in. I was so excited to to hopefully get my first pedicure since last winter sometime in July or August. Well, that toenail is definitely falling off again, and my dreams of 5 pretty red toenails in sexy summer sandals is gone this year. Hopefully it will heal fast and by late fall I’ll be wearing my dark brown leather strappy wedges with 5 deep red polished little piggies.

Until then, we’re keeping cool with flavored teas and lemonades. We’ve been drinking lots of green tea since I discovered family size green tea bags made by Luzianne. To change it up, I flavored my green tea with fresh peaches. I pureed them in the blender and then strained the mixture through a fine mesh strainer. I used stevia to sweeten, but you can use plain sugar instead.

Peach Green Tea Recipe

Ingredients

2 whole fresh peaches
1 family size bag green tea, or 6 single ones

Method

1. Boil water for tea on stove in a small saucepan. When water comes to a boil add tea bags and remove pan from heat. Let steep for about 15 minutes.

3. Strain peach and tea mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a 2 quart pitcher. Add stevia or sugar and mix well. Add enough water to fill pitcher.

4. Serve over ice.

    To let the tea steep, I used about 4 cups water.

      Thanks so much. I’m going to try your method as soon as local peaches or nectarines are available here in PA.

    I’m soooo sorry about your toe! I think toes are just evil and always getting in the way of furniture, dogs, running teenagers with large shoes, etc…….

    btw, I love your blog. Keep up the fun recipes and ideas!

    Sorry about the toe but I would much rather smash my toe nail than smash a Canon 5D. The shot looks great.
