I love Peach Tea! When I have guests over for afternoon tea, I usually offer this with my specialty: Banana Bread. Usually they will prefer the Peppermint tea but once they’ve tried the Peach they don’t go back to Peppermint.
The only thing was that I felt like it was such a waste to throw the tea bags immediately after one use. BUT I know it is a no-no to reuse them for hot tea so I thought why not make ICED TEA??? Like my friend J of 80Breakfasts, I am also averse to waste. (She is so much better at it than I am though =P )
To do this, I always provide guest with a small clean bowl to place their used tea bags after steeping. Then these tea bags go directly in a ziplock bag and into the freezer. Whenever I feel like iced tea (still much healthier than soft drinks) I just dunk a couple of bags in a pitcher and add cold water, ice and a little Tropicana Slim Sweetener (regular sugar will do) – Voila! You have YUMMY PEACH ICED TEA!
My husband, TD (The Diplomat), does not like tea at all but he actually likes this! I am happy that I am not only coming up with a way to extend the use of my tea bags but I am also helping TD avoid his addiction to Coca-cola! =D
You can do this with any other kind of tea. It’s healthier than sodas, concentrated/powdered juices!
