Move over plain iced tea. This flavorful peach infused tea is sure to have you reaching for the pitcher for another glass. The recipe calls for dried peaches, which you’ll rehydrate in warm, honey-infused water and classic English breakfast tea.

It’s the taste of summer in the '90s, brought back to you with even more deliciousness that's better for you than the sugar-packed iced teas commonly seen. Pro tip: Chop the dried peaches before steeping—they’ll release more peach flavor, and it doesn’t matter what they look like since you’ll discard them, anyway.


  • cup honey

  • 8 ounces dried peaches (1⅓ cups)

  • 6 bags English breakfast tea

  • Fresh peach slices, lemon slices, and/or mint sprigs, for serving


  1. Bring honey and 1 cup water to a boil in a small pot over medium-high, stirring occasionally, until honey dissolves, about 2 minutes. Add dried peaches and tea bags; remove from heat and steep, covered, for 5 minutes.

  2. Uncover and remove tea bags, gently squeezing to release tea; discard bags. Cover and continue to steep dried peaches for 20 to 25 minutes.

  3. Remove and discard dried peaches. Transfer tea mixture to a pitcher and stir in 4 cups water. Chill for at least 1 hour before serving. Serve over ice with fresh peach slices, lemon slices, and/or mint.
