Peach Melba Iced Tea

A French chef created the Peach Melba dessert in London for an Australian singer named Nellie Melba. It's peaches in a raspberry sauce over vanilla ice cream.

I paired two of the flavors in iced tea and it is so sweet you don't have to add sugar! It's really quite good and tastes like summer!

PEACH MELBA ICED TEA

2 regular-size bags peach tea such as Celestial Seasonings Peach Passion
1family-size bag raspberry tea such as Lipton Specially Blended for Iced Tea Raspberry
8 cups of water to start plus 6-8 more later

Place the tea bags and 8 cups of cold water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Turn off heat and steep for 15 minutes or so (sometimes I lose track of time and it still turns out OK.)

Remove the tea bags and discard. Mix the tea with 6-8 cups of water ... taste as you add the water to get it to the strength you like. You can add sugar if you really want to, but it's so naturally sweet you really shouldn't. Definitely taste before you add sugar.

I haven't thought about creating a recipe with tea. Good idea! It will come in handy as I continue my "unsweetened tea instead of diet coke" challenge. Thanks for sharing.
