Peach + Peppermint Iced Tea- DIY

Two of my most favorite flavors of tea are peach + peppermint. I love drinking them when the weather is snippy. Peppermint gives you that refreshing, clean taste and is PERFECT for the holiday season. Peach has a sweet scent and I just absolutely love the flavor.

Since it’s no longer freezing outside and the sun now sets around 7pm or later, I’m craving for a cold, healthy (!) drink. Yes, sometimes I do healthy. So what is better than combining my 2 favorite flavors and making a Peach + Peppermint Iced Tea?! 

The weather was pretty close to perfect today. Made this drink while at my sis in law’s place. I love that her balcony has a view of the harbor and city. It is so gorgeous at night. Def. need some night shots here!

Some of you may already know that I LOVE Teavana. I’m sure that there are many other Tea companies out there that are better and more economical but for me, Teavana hits the spot. 

I use Peppermint + Rooibos Peach teas. 

Remember that everything can be altered according to taste. If you like sweeter iced tea, add more sugar, etc. Basically, I make a tea syrup b/c I don’t want to steep a whole pot of hot tea and have to wait for it to cool down. Imagine how long that would take?!

Here’s how to make Peach + Peppermint Iced Tea-

3/4 Tablespoon of Peppermint tea + 1/3 Tablespoon of Roobois Peach tea + 1 cup hot water + 1/4 cup brown sugar. Steep for about 30 mins. Allow the syrup to cool down in the fridge. Once you are ready to make the iced tea just add water to the tea syrup or vice versa. Easy as pie. 

For this glass jug, I first fill it with some tea syrup and to that I add water and ice. Mix well. 

Fresh mint from our garden! The cost of mint at the market is RIDICULOUS! A hand full for like 3 bucks. No way. 

Add some lemon slices for that extra refreshing taste. Plus, it looks good!

It’s so simple. Please go make your own iced tea! 

Btw, what are your favorite flavors? Please share!

  1. I love iced tea! Mint is very economical in my part of the world- Mumbai! They Meyer lemons look so pretty in the jug

  2. I really enjoy your blog and all the photographs. I also love Teavana. This sounds super tasty and can’t wait to try it.

  3. I love the pictures! Very refreshing, just like tea!
    My favourite tea is orange pekoe by Lee Valley Tools. It’s so smooth!

    I went through a phase of trying all different flavors of tea, and I’ve come back to English breakfast. I can often find excellent, usually-expensive teas in the liquidation stores. Of course if you try one you like, that brand will probably be wiped out by the time you go back. Sometimes you can find nice teas, jams, etc. in those stores to make up a lovely gift basket.

  5. I love your photos! What kind of camera do you have? I really want to try some of that tea just by looking at your pictures…wow!!!! I’m a fan!

    Roibos peach tea? That sounds perfect! Oh, and gorgeous photography!

  9. This sounds and looks delicious! I love peach iced tea, so I can imagine adding peppermint would make it even more yummy. Ought to try this one out as soon as the weather here decides to be less “hot chocolate time”-y! My favourite tea is Hibiscus, tastes great and the colour is beautiful too :)

  10. What a great idea, I don’t usually drink herbal teas as I am a bit of a coffee junkie but know I need to drink less of it. Think I will give this a go as it sounds really refreshing. Will let you know if I find any other combinations.

  11. Very nice, i’ve never really been a fan of ice tea but you make it sound so delightful. I’ll have to give it a try sometime!

    I really like tazo passionfruit right now. Beautiful photos! Can I ask what type of camera?

  13. Yummy! And what beautiful pictures you take. I think they are ready to be published with all your work

  14. I love peppermint as well, but also chamomile. Chamomile is said to be very calming and healing. Lovely pictures!

    Beautiful photos like always, all the colors are so bright and so true-to-nature !

  16. I absolutely adore Teavana. I must try your recipe as it looks and sounds delish! As always your photos are breath taking – such artistry.

    Thanks for sharing and inspiring.
