Everyone assumes that because I am southern, I am a sweet tea drinker, FALSE. Truth is, I have always drank unsweetened tea and have to drink at least one glass a day to keep sane. I don’t like tea overly sweet and this Peach Mint Unsweetened Tea is so refreshing and the sweetness from the peaches gives it a great balance. This is the perfect summertime drink to sip on by the pool or on your back porch with family and friends.

This recipe is Whole30 and Paleo compliant, but if you want to add a little bourbon or other liquor if choice, you can turn this tea into a refreshing cocktail. If you are not a peach fan, play around with the fruits that you add and get creative. To make, I will boil my tea bags and cut up my fruit. I add cold ice cubes and cut fruit to a pitcher then add the tea with a little water. I will allow my tea to sit for at least 2 hours before serving because it allow all the yummy fruit flavors to enter the tea.

The mint adds another summertime element that takes me back to childhood. Mint is such an amazing herb to add to anything to give it a distinctive flavor. If you are needing a refreshing drink that will cool you off this summer or maybe you are sick of drinking water, give this Peach Tea a try.
