In 1904 a gentleman by the name of Richard Blechynden was trying to sell his hot tea at the World's Fair in St. Louis and because there was a heat wave, no one wanted any, so he added some ice and iced tea became popular.
Like most Southerners, I began drinking iced tea at a young age. Today, I'm driving Mama back down to Florida to stay the summer with me and we'll be sippin' some Peach Tea all the way!
If you are bored with traditional sweet tea, adding a peach flavor is a nice way to add some Southern spice to your tea. The natural sweeteners of peaches is also a healthy substitute for sugar! Peach tea is simple to make...steep the teabags, pour the beverage into a pitcher, add water, and stir.
Pour the tea into a glass over ice and add the peach slices...easy Peach Tea!
Yes, Mama will hopefully be spending the summer with me. I'm not sure how much interesting stuff I'll be able to write about...we will just have to see how this plays out. I truly am honored and feel blessed that I can spend more time with Mama at this time.
